Qatar: what becomes of Laurent Blanc, who still interests Aulas and OL?

Appreciated by OL President Jean-Michel Aulas, who had already thought of him to succeed Sylvinho in 2019, Laurent Blanc is still stationed in Qatar. The French technician is having a complicated season with Al-Rayyan.

He confessed to “thinking” of him as one thinks of a crush with whom it has never been done but that one fails to forget. In an interview given to Europe 1, Jean-Michel Aulas confided that he had not given up the idea of ​​one day entrusting the reins of OL to Laurent Blanc. A coach he particularly appreciates. “He is a boy who has incomparable experience, he said. I had seen him for a long time in Russia during the World Cup. I had felt this ability in him. Things did not happen. But do you ever know? Lyon supporters have probably not forgotten that the former coach of the Blues was once the favorite to take over from Sylvinho in October 2016.
