Corentin Tolisso on why he rejected Napoli

Lyon midfielder Corentin Tolisso has revealed to France Football why he rejected a move to Napoli this summer.

“As soon as I made my decision, everything was clear in my head. I quickly turned the page. The next day, I was a Lyon player 100%. I also had done the pre-season in such a spirit before we took up collective training again. When Napoli came back, in July, I really hesitated. But once I had definitively said no, my priority was to have a great season with Lyon. I really made a decision from the bottom of my heart, a footballing decision. I know that there were advantages associated with going over there but Lyon, for me, it is not about money.”
