Alexandre Lacazette, Lyon striker, joked about reports of some tension with Peter Bosz, the club’s coach. He denied them, regretting lies.
A little over a month after his arrival, Alexandre Lacazette (31) is already stepping up to defend OL. The forward has reacted to reports of an alleged tense moment between him and coach Peter Bosz for a tactical reason. He expressed himself on social networks by denouncing lies with smileys with growing noses, in reference to Pinocchio, the famous wooden puppet whose nose grows when he lies.
This message comes at the heart of a checkered preparation (four wins, three losses) of the Rhone club, very active on the transfer market. After Lacazette, OL also recorded the comeback of a former member of the training centre, Corentin Tolisso. Midfielder Johan Lepenant and left-back Nicolas Tagliafico also joined the Rhone club with very strong ambitions after a failed last season that ended without any European qualification.
A mixed preparation for the Lyonnais
During this preparation, Peter Bosz lined up several different team compositions with eleven made up mainly of young people and others of more experienced players. This gave rise to mixed results with in particular two heavy defeats against Willem II (5-0) and Anderlecht (3-0). They concluded their week of preparation in the Netherlands with a success against Feyenoord (2-0) during which Lacazette scored, a few days after being the victim of several wasp stings in the face.
The Lyonnais will play a last prestigious friendly match against Inter on Saturday (8:30 p.m.) at Giuseppe Meazza ten days before the resumption of Ligue 1 against AC Ajaccio (9 p.m., 1st day) at Groupama Stadium.
