With just two weeks left of summer vacation, the club is finalizing their summer schedule. The month before the start of the season will be especially crucial because there’s a new manager to break in. Sylvinho, who’s never been the top manager at a club before, will have a lot to learn in a very short time.
It doesn’t help that Lyon’s first league game is against Monaco, who, despite their relegation-level performance this past season, remain a big danger.
