Speaking following Olympique Lyonnais’s 0-0 draw against Brest last night in Ligue 1, manager Laurent Blanc was not best pleased with his players’ performances, especially in attack. Blanc says his players are lacking in their attitude going forward, and that there is a missing killer instinct within his attacking players. The following was transcribed by RMC Sport.
Blanc told the press that Lyon’s players lack the necessary “spontaneity and aggressiveness to score,” explaining that he sees “situations on the touchline, and I feel they are not going to make the right decisions”. The Frenchman then says “you have to be a killer” and that “once you have scored, the game changes completely,” highlighting that “you have to score the first goal, whether its a rebound, a header, a corner or free-kick.”
Lyon largely dominated the match against Brest in terms of possession but could not find the breakthrough against the Breton side to follow up their win against Ajaccio at the weekend with a 0-0 draw at home.
