Between injury and season on the bench, Rayan Cherki can ask questions. OL and Jean-Michel Aulas have taken the lead to put him at the center of the new Lyon project.
Olympique Lyonnais is currently experiencing a new turning point in its history. Two of its major shareholders have decided to turn the page, the sports results are not there and after the Covid crisis and the Mediapro fiasco, the last few years have also been very difficult financially. Nevertheless, you can trust Jean-Michel Aulas to turn things around in a positive way. This is what the president of OL did during the press conference used to formalize the extension of Maxence Caqueret. The young Lyonnais is one of the symbols of the success of the training center of the Rhone club, and if he decided to continue his adventure, it is because the international hopefuls also had guarantees at the level of the evolution of the club. .
End of contract in 2023
The idea now is to rely on Lyon’s know-how, and in particular young up-and-comers like Malo Gusto, Castello Lukeba, Bradley Barcola or Rayan Cherki. Regarding the latter, his playing time under Peter Bosz is still as low, and his recent injury obviously did not help matters. Inevitably, questions arose about his future, even if the player has always made it known that he intended to win at OL. But the patience of young players quickly has its limits these days, and Jean-Michel Aulas wanted to accelerate in this file, while Cherki will reach the end of the contract in 2023. I saw Rayan Cherki’s parents on Tuesday to make a long term proposal. We will see him next week, he is one of those players who have relied on promised the president of OL, who aims to extend the club’s best hopes to demonstrate that his policy is now geared towards the club’s young people.
