Mid Table joy for Lyon


When Manager Niall Taylor arrived in Lyon, the French outfit were well and truly rooted to the bottom of Div 2 and were relegation favourites after a shock start to the season, but 21 leauge games later Lyon finished the season an a surprising 12th position.



” When i arrived confidence was at rock bottom, so i took them on a break to Scotland, and did some team bonding, we added Christian Benteke as i felt we needed an attacking outlet and brought back to the club Clement Grenier and made Pontus Wernbloom captain, i think the influence of these 3 and staring performances from veterans Mathieu Valbuena, Gorka Iraizoz & Spanish forward Rodrigo Moreno helped the rest of the squad raise their game and suddenly team found us very hard to break down”

In the 21 games Taylor was in charge Lyon won 10 drew 6 and lost 5 which led to a points total of 46 points and a 12th place finish

On next season Taylor had this to say ” We are now activity looking to overhaul the squad, heroes for this season will be allowed to leave if the sale benefits the club moving forward, we have already trimmed the youth set up which again needs alot of work, which will hopefully in the years to come develop players for the first team, our aim for next season will to make the top 10 and build on this season.
