Nabil Fekir was very close to joining Liverpool last summer, but the deal did not materialize. Now, former Lyon coach Bruno Genesio believes attacking midfielder needs a new challenge and a move out of the club.
“I think that he [Fekir] was very frustrated with his canceled transfer to Liverpool at the beginning of the season,” Genesio told French radio station RMC.
“He made the World Cup, he had some injuries. He certainly did not feel strong enough to take on the role of leader, which he had done the previous season, relaying technical information on the pitch. Nabil is coming to the end of a cycle in Lyon. He has experienced a lot of things here.
“I think that he needs a new challenge, to push his limits, and to be self-critical. Because we know, we always need a personal challenge in a career, and to ask questions of ourselves”, Genesio said.
