OL: "You have to show character, personality", Laurent Blanc attacks his players


The Rhone coach was particularly disappointed by the behavior of his players against Stade Brestois this Wednesday evening (0-0).

Another disappointment for Olympique Lyonnais.

This Wednesday evening, at Groupama Stadium, the Rhone club conceded the point of the draw against Stade Brestois (0-0), an opponent supposed to be within reach.

In content, the Gones did not perform badly.

They dominated the game, getting several dangerous situations with no less than twenty-eight shots.

But, as often in recent months, they fished in the finish.

A lack of realism which is not (no longer?) at all to Laurent Blanc's taste.

The “


” seemed disillusioned at a press conference by this recurring problem of efficiency: “

If there were no opportunities, I would speak of sterile domination but that is not the case.

There, we lack this aggressiveness to score goals, we lack spontaneity.

I see situations from the bench and I feel that they are not going to make the right move

, he said after the match.

And if you score, the course of the match is no longer the same.

We have to score that first goal, no matter how, but we have to score.

A penalty

Laurent Blanc to his players

If the Lyon players appear so fragile in the opposing area, or around it, it is undoubtedly due to the particular context in which they have been evolving for a few weeks.

Only tenth in Ligue 1, very far from the ambitions displayed at the start of the season, they are now faced with the dissatisfaction of their supporters.

The latter, who raise their voices more and more to be heard, no longer hesitate to whistle certain elements - Karl Toko Ekambi before his departure for Stade Rennes, Moussa Dembélé this Wednesday evening - or to oppose Jean- Michel Aulas singing to the glory of Juninho Pernambucano, one of the legends of the club and ex-sporting director whom the Rhone president recently scratched.

A slightly hostile climate which players must "


", according to Laurent Blanc.

I tell them

: 'Don't be afraid when you enter your land!

No one can play for you.

The context is difficult, we can understand it, accept it, but once on the field, no one will come to take your place. '' So you have to win, they did almost everything well except score a goal

, "he said. he stated in front of reporters.

Before being a little more incisive:

In a good period, you have the confidence but there, you have to show character, personality.

I know I'm going to do a check, I put on my foot, I hit and I score.

It's like that, whether in the game or on a corner even if in this area, we lack size.

“Will these words make the Lyonnais react?
