Lyon: Is Bosz still the man for the job?

With a string of three consecutive defeats in Ligue 1, Olympique Lyonnais coach Peter Bosz seems increasingly fragile. However, the performance provided by Les Gones during the setback against Paris Saint-Germain (0-1) is enough to give hope to the Dutchman and the Rhone club.

Lyon: Is Bosz still the man for the job?

Despite the defeat, Peter Bosz showed a reaction against PSG (0-1).

Against Paris Saint-Germain (0-1) on Sunday, Olympique Lyonnais did not die, but finally lost. A third defeat in the last three Ligue 1 meetings, which confirms the delicate past encountered by the Peter Bosz gang. How am I going to manage the truce? I will drink a lot of alcohol after three defeatslaughed the Dutchman after the match.

And precisely, the case of the 58-year-old technician calls out more and more. Placed on a disposable seat after a disappointing 2020-2021 exercise, the former Ajax Amsterdam player has not yet found the keys to raise the bar. In terms of accounting anyway.

The 4-4-2, the beautiful reaction of Bosz

Because it is clear that if the result did not follow, against PSG, Bosz was able to change his plans and react. And that Lyon managed to produce play and create danger. Thanks in particular to the implementation of a 4-4-2 system, which made it possible to associate attackers Alexandre Lacazette and Moussa Dembl. I felt good. It was pleasant for me. It was different. But it was not easy because we had a big team in front, but it was a pleasure to play in such a systemunderlined the OL captain in the mixed zone.

Despite the defeat, OL, 6th in the standings 6 points from the podium, showed better than their previous losses against Lorient (1-3) and Monaco (1-2). Which is still insufficient for the Batavian. We have good players but we had a difficult first period respecting them too much. We are backing up too much, we were afraid of their speed. In the second half, we were more into duels. Unfortunately with our chances, we didn’t score.lamented the Rhone coach.

Visible progress, confirm

Du, Bosz, however, does not surrender. Far from it. I have a feeling of progress. Afraid of not having time? No, I’m not afraid of anyone and anything. So fear is not the right word. If they don’t give me time, it’s like that, but I have a very specific idea of ​​how I want this team to play and we’re working for that.assured the 58-year-old coach, rather relaxed at a press conference.

Other positive points can also be drawn from this game. Indeed, the maintenance of Thiago Mendes, very good in front of Kylian Mbapp, in central defense has proven to be a success, despite the numerous criticisms received by the Brazilian in recent weeks. And despite the pressure, Bosz was therefore not afraid to make strong choices. With the international break, the whole Lyon group will have the opportunity to work and the coach will definitely try to get his ideas across.
