In Lyon, we do not mess with the schedules… Project manager of the stunning victory of OL in Prague (4-3) after coming into play at the start of the second half, the Brazilian Lucas Paqueta started the match on the bench… because of a delay in the pre-game chat.
Nothing tactical or medical, therefore, in his surprising non-tenure in the Rhone midfielder.
Dutch coach Peter Bosz and sporting director Juninho simply did not appreciate this second hand gap.
“Honestly, I would rather lose 5-0 and even leave my post than make certain decisions against our values,” explains Juninho on Canal +.
We have values.
It's not that we want to be better than others but we decide values together.
I have already talked a bit with his agent as well.
Unfortunately, there is no choice.
It is not yet clear why he arrived late.
The door was already closed.
From the moment the door is closed and the coach has started his chat, if a player has not returned he knows that something will happen.

The OL staff, however, had to resolve to bring in Paqueta while Prague, who led 2-0 after 19 minutes, was still in the lead (2-1) when they returned to the locker room.
The effect was not long in being felt.
The former AC Milan player, at the origin of Aouar's equalizing goal, then allowed Lyon to take the advantage after a great collective action.
Showing that it is essential in the workforce of Gones.
But not to the point of benefiting from any kind of privilege.
“The rules are the same for everyone,” says Bosz.
I want to see the excuses on the ground.
He showed the correct answer.
