Speaking at a press conference yesterday during the unveiling of Zimbabwean attacker Tino Kadewere, Lyon Sporting Director Juninho discussed the futures of Houssem Aouar and Moussa Dembélé.
“Moussa and Houssem are two of the best players in the team but they are different cases. Houssem was formed here, he has been here for a long time. He brings us the technical touch required in midfield. But we know that the majority of youth academy talents here, who have Houssem’s talent, have left at one moment or another. It is the president who will decide. If we receive offers, we will analyse them. He is an important player.”
“Moussa had a good season, I think that he still has room to improve. He is a pure centre forward, who brings us a lot of strength and presence in the box. And he scores goals. If we lose players of his level, we will seek replacements, I hope of the same level of quality. We have spoken about this with the president.”
