Speaking in his unveiling press conference as the new manager of Lyon, Dutch tactician Peter Bosz gave a first look at how he intends to manage the club going forward.
“I am very happy to be here, in a great club. I have a philosophy: to produce attacking and attractive football, because we play for the supporters, not for ourselves. But obviously, it depends on the players in the squad. I prefer technical and intelligent players.”
“At Ajax, like at Lyon now, it was important to play the youngsters. But it does not just depend on the age: I am not scared to give young players a chance and to put faith in them, they have the qualities. At Leverkusen for example, I gave Florian Wirtz a chance when he was just 16.”
“In the Netherlands, it was said that the team started seasons slowly and finished strongly. In Germany, I was told that the team started strongly and finished slowly. What I want, in France, is to start and finish strongly!”
“I am heading back for two more weeks of holiday, but I will of course remain in contact with Juninho to talk about the players, pre-season, the way of working. I will be thinking a lot about Lyon!”
