A Brazilian duo at the head of the sportsman at the OL? While Juninho, the former idol of Gerland, is about to return to Lyon as a sports director, he could be supported as a coach by Sylvinho.
Sylvinho, 45, former Brazilian international (6 caps) was until Friday the deputy of Tite, the Brazilian coach. He was released by the Brazilian federation. He is now the favorite to take over Bruno Genesio on the bench of Olympique Lyonnais.
The choice of Juninho
The possible arrival of Sylvinho at OL is closely linked to that of his compatriot Juninho. But nothing is signed yet. Many details remain to be settled between OL and its former number 8, which agreed in principle. And Jean-Michel Aulas absolutely wants to bring back Juninho. The latter would bet on Sylvinho.
For the coaching position, the track leading to Mikel Arteta, deputy Pep Guardiola in Manchester City, was not closed Friday night, unlike Marcelo Gallardo. Arteta still likes Lyon. But in the Rhône, now, "Juni" has the keys to choose the future coach.
