Former Aston Villa and Liverpool boss Gérard Houllier is expected to be appointed as the new General Manager at Lyon in the coming days.
President Jean Michel Aulas eluded to this possibility in an interview with Le Progrès over the weekend.
Houllier will oversee the male, female and youth teams and be heavily involved in transfer policy.
Therefore, it will be a Houllier – Génésio ticket next season for Les Gones.
This move leaves Bernard Lacombe’s future at the club in doubt, having previously adopted a similar role under a different title, as special advisor to Aulas.
