Lyon: Luis Campos, the new track for the post-Juninho

While Juninho intends to leave his post of sports director of Olympique Lyonnais at the end of the season, Luis Campos has taken information on the Rhone club. The former genius recruiter from Monaco and Lille is interested in OL.

Luis Campos has been free since leaving Lille in 2020

I hope to finish the season well. And the end of the season is normally over. Last week, Juninho surprised his world by announcing that he wanted to end his duties as sports director of Olympique Lyonnais at the end of the 2021-2022 exercise.

If the announcement surprised, its timing allows Lyon to prepare the succession of the Brazilian present. The Rhone club has several months to study the profiles and find the next ideal sports director. And a very interesting name has just appeared this Friday in the list of potential candidates: Luis Campos.

Campos learns about Lyon

According to information from Foot Mercato, the Portuguese took information about OL. However, Lyon supporters should not get carried away. In fact, no contact has yet been made between the Lyon management and the one who is considered to be one of the best recruiters in the world. Free since his departure from Lille in 2020, Campos is currently studying the possibilities that may be offered to him.

Since the end of his adventure with the Mastiffs, his name has been associated with Real Madrid, Tottenham or Newcastle, without this leading to a new collaboration for the one who has done wonders in the recruitment of Monaco and LOSC. Is the Lyon option more likely to succeed? It is still too early to answer, but the idea is enticing on paper.
