Interesting times are about to come Lyon’s way. The French side managed to finish third in Ligue 1 and book their place in Champions League, but Bruno Genesio will not be leading the squad next season. The reason for that are the new changes in this illustrious club.
Jean Michael Aulas, club president, confirmed that Juninho Pernambucano will become the team’s sporting director and his first move in the new job is signing Brazilian Sylvinho to be the first-team manager.
“We saw Juni two times at Los Angeles to obtain his agreement and we have it,” Aulas told reporters following Lyon’s Ligue 1 game this weekend, a 4-0 defeat of Caen.
“And he will come, even though there are some financial details remaining. He has a love story with Lyon”, Aulas said, before he revealed that Juninho’s countryman Sylvinho will take over from Victor Genesio as Lyon’s coach. Sylvinho never worked as a first-team manager, but was assistant manager for Brazil during the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
