Olympique Lyonnais denies the information relayed by the daily sports paper L'Equipe this morning stating that Yoann GOURCUFF has elected to have arthroscopic surgery to his ankle against the advice of the club.

OL wishes to state very clearly that the decision was taken in full consultation between Yoann GOURCUFF and the medical staff and that the various medical and physical tests undergone by the player have shown that medical intervention planned for Wednesday was unavoidable and that it will solve 100% of the pain and discomfort he suffered well before his arrival at Olympique Lyonnais."
