In search of a successor to Rudi Garcia, Olympique Lyonnais has decided to bet on Peter Bosz. The Dutch manager signed his two-year contract, plus an optional one, with the Rhone team.
Olympique Lyonnais has its new coach. And as expected, it will not be Christophe Galtier. Faced with the refusal of the no-champion of France, the Rhone club did not hesitate in seeking a technician with a profile different from that of Lille since it was indeed Peter Bosz who was chosen.
Bosz for two years plus one optional
Indeed, the 57-year-old man accepted the proposal formulated by the recent 4th in Ligue 1. This relates to a two-year contract, plus an optional one. Expected no later than Sunday, the Batavian finally initialed his lease with the Lyon club, this Saturday, at the start of the evening. Seduced by the prospect of leading an ambitious team which will try to rebuild itself after the departure of its best player, Memphis Depay, with the goal of regaining the Champions League, Bosz, on standby since his dismissal by Bayer Leverkusen , last March, was convinced and convinced his interlocutors.
A changing profile
This is a small revolution for OL. Because Jean-Michel Aulas trusted only one foreign coach in 34 years of chairmanship with Sylvinho, in the summer of 2019. A failed experience which was stopped after only a few months. But unlike the Brazilian, the former Toulon player (1988-1991) has the advantage of speaking French and having a solid experience behind him. He is considered the builder of the recent golden generation of Ajax, with whom he reached the Europa League final in 2017, and left great Leverkusen memories thanks to a loose game. His ability to advance young people is an additional asset that tipped the scales in his favor.
