Speaking to reporters on Thursday, Houssem Aouar discussed his decision to remain with Lyon during the transfer window.
“Of course I asked myself all the necessary questions. I am in the headspace to have a great season with my club and get back the points that we have lost. So of course we are going to try to do the best season and to try to put the team and the club back in its rightful place, at the top of France. Disappointed? I am the opposite. I am at home, in the club that I love, with my friends and my family. So certainly I have all my bearings and it is giving me even more motivation to have a good season and to bring the club back into the top places in France. There is a lot of motivation, we have a quality group, with a very good team, notably in attack with certain arrivals. We have satisfied with this team but now we are going to have to show it on the pitch a bit more than we have done at the beginning of this season.”
