Hello boss. Lyon, Peter Boss, refused to hold Anthony Lopez directly responsible for the show that his team beat Ajaccio 2-0 in the opening match of the First Division, Friday, at Groupama Stadium in the French city, the Portuguese international goalkeeper. At 27, in an out-of-time exit and frightening entry, Idrissi “shocked”, leading to 1-2 for the visitors and sending off the 31-year-old Portuguese, leaving his side outnumbered.
However, Bosz admitted that this kind of play, in a team that looked riddled with defeat, and that, in making it almost 3-0, he found himself with a 2-1 cross advantage and a digital inferiority on the field (ten to eleven) Ajaccio players with “red ‘ to the Portuguese player), ‘It can’t happen’.
“We could have done better, but that red card… Honestly, you win 2-0 and ‘this’ happen? It wasn’t good, it couldn’t happen, it couldn’t be! First, who are you?[ny Lopes]. But attention, we were all badly off, specifically defense as well. Not just him,” the coach eventually told reporters, citing footmercato.net.
“Everything was going well, but you can’t go past 3-0 the whole time, balanced in attack. So red card [a Anthony Lopes] It had a shocking effect”, admitted the 58-year-old Dutch coach, who arrived at Ol. Lyon in 2021 from Bayer Leverkusen (Germany), and is a former international midfielder for the Netherlands (eight caps).
“Fortunately, even before the break, Ajaccio was also reduced to ten. Then we manage to dominate the game well. Being eighth in Ligue 1 again is not: we have to win all the points at home, these fans deserve it”, Peter Boss, still weak-hearted and without finger-pointing concluded at the Portuguese player, who is already 22 years old. Lyon, the club he arrived at as a child, in 2000 (22 years ago!), after spending four seasons in the B team (2008 to 2012) and who defended the logo goal for a decade, almost always as captain.
