Juninho, the comeback. According to L'Équipe, the former Olympique Lyonnais star has agreed to become an advisor to John Textor and Eagle Football. The media outlet explains that the Brazilian will continue to live in Rio de Janeiro and will travel to Lyon for one week a month. The former free-kick master could also be present on matchday 15 of the league against Toulouse. Juninho will also take care of two other clubs controlled by Textor and Eagle Football: Botafogo and Molenbeek. The former is on a run of nine games without a win and the latter has won only one game in nine games in the Belgian league.

Arriving in 2001, the former midfielder remained at Lyon until 2009, actively participating in the club's heyday. He then became the club's sporting director before slamming the door in 2021. As a reminder, OL sacked their head coach Fabio Grosso on Thursday. Sitting last in Ligue 1, Lyon are trying to find solutions.
