Speaking in an interview with L’Équipe following his first ever call-up to the French national team, Lyon attacking midfielder Houssem Aouar was asked about his future.
Is it hard knowing you could leave Lyon without saying goodbye to a full stadium of fans?
I haven’t left yet. So I haven’t asked this question.
Sometimes people say that you shouldn’t change club the year before the Euros, to preserve your chances of being in the squad. Has that entered your thoughts?
I haven’t left yet!
We are going to ask the question again, in another way – today, what do you want to do?
That one is very tough (laughs). I want us to start the league well. And that we beat Dijon, to start with.
