Lyon: the Marseillaise and the whistles to welcome Aouar who opted for Algeria rather than the Blues


The Lyon public has copiously whistled the Lyonnais who has announced to give up the French selection to play in favor of Algeria in the future.

Houssem Aouar had the right to a hostile reception from his own public in Lyon on Friday evening when his team welcomed Nantes.

Entering the 73rd minute of play, the midfielder walked the lawn under a rain of whistles.

A Marseillaise was even launched by some of the Gone supporters reproaching their player for having chosen Algeria as a sporting nationality rather than France.

An icy welcome for Aouar, at the end of his contract in Lyon next June and who revealed on Thursday that he had chosen to represent the Fennecs as a national team despite being selected for the France team, more than two years ago, against Ukraine (October 07, 2020).

For Lyon fans, the player's statement justifying this choice is also difficult to pass.

Aouar said he regretted having accepted the call of Les Bleus and Didier Deschamps in 2020.

“To be honest, once my choice to join the France team, I simply felt regret.

For my part, I had not made the choice that suited me.

But I did not see myself taking the first step (towards Algeria) because that would make me look like someone opportunist.
