False rumours

The diary of Olympique Lyonnais is full of important future events: The French championship, the Coupe de France and the Champions League. In each and everyone of these competitions OL wants to go as far as possible, will go as far as possible, and to do that the current squad will remain.

Once upon a time there was a team. A strong team, a team of winners. Players united as one. The diary of Olympique Lyonnais is full of important future events: The French championship, the Coupe de France and the Champions League. In each and everyone of these competitions OL wants to go as far as possible, will go as far as possible, and to do that the current squad will remain intact. The “mercato” opens at midnight this evening as the champagne corks fly and the world yells ‘Happy New Year’. Some are still giving presents...
Not at Olympique Lyonnais. The mercato will be a calm affair. Sylvain WILTORD will be staying in this squad of mates and will fight alongside them on the pitch. He is one of the driving forces of this team and OL has no intention of seeing him head north. Playing for OL is a huge motivation.
Florent MALOUDA is also happily preparing to return to action in the colours of Lyon. OL are currently involved in conract extension talks with the player and a club does not let a player go in such circumstances

The first of January may appear for some like April 1, full of practical jokes. Rest assured you can pass you holidays in total serenity. Safe in the knowledge that you can laugh at those who profess the iminent departure of Sylvain Wiltord or Florent Malouda because they wil be there to excite you for the whole season. OL is a great reason to be happy, in love with the beautiful game.
