Olympique Lyonnais have just experienced one of their worst weekends ever. And the season has barely started.
Despite it only being the second week of Ligue 1, our most promising young striker suffered a torn knee ligament in training while the team experienced an embarrassing defeat to a promoted club. Worse yet, the search for a central defender has been equally underwhelming.
The pressure is already heaped on “Pep” Genesio as this Friday, OL will host an eager Strasbourg side who are looking to repeat last season’s upset. We’ve all tried to bury that 3-2 loss deep into our memories, (just like the time that you accidentally killed your neighbor’s bird when babysitting it while they were away on vacation). Dimitri Lienard pulled a stunning Memphis Depay-esque last minute winner out of his arse that shocked the OL and gave Strasbourg all 3 points.
