Speaking in an interview with Le Parisien, Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas was asked about the start that the Brazilian Sporting Director – Head Coach duo of Juninho and Sylvinho had made this season.
“We have to be patient. Stability is the best protection against seesaw results. The proof, is that I have been running Lyon for 33 years. We started well in the first two matches… Then, there were in-match realities, like us playing two matches with 10 players. After that, we did not rediscover the right confidence, the right ambition. But they exist at the core of our players. The Juninho-Sylvinho duo is a good duo. They are just beginning their lives as a Sporting Director and manager, and they are super bright.”
