Confusion in Lyon over €112 ‘Tolisso 5’ shirts sold in club shop

As reported by RMC SportOL have been selling ‘Tolisso 5’ shirts in their club shop despite the player affirming over social media that he will not wear the number in Ligue 1 next season. It is a gaff that could cost Lyon fans dearly, as Lyon are offering Corentin Tolisso’s No.5 shirt on their club shop priced at €112 – with several fans that have already bought the shirt that Tolisso won’t be wearing next season for Les Gones. 

The 22/23 season is ten days away, yet both Tolisso and fellow signing Alexandre Lacazette’s shirt numbers have not yet been confirmed by the club, who are instead selling shirts adorned with the temporary numbers that the pair have been wearing throughout pre-season (91 for Lacazette, and 5 for Tolisso). 

Tolisso had to clear up the matter on twitter himself, exclaiming that the 5 shirt was a “provisional number!” and that he “won’t be playing with it in the championship” in response to an OL insider account tweet on Lacazette’s and Tolisso’s shirt numbers during pre-season.
