Coupet’s big tackle on Lyon’s tactics and Bosz on set pieces

Grégory Coupet, historic OL goalkeeper, did not really appreciate Lyon’s performance in the defeat to Monaco this Sunday (2-1), for the seventh day of Ligue 1. Peter Bosz was not spared.

Is Peter Bosz in danger? OL are coming off a bad week with two defeats in four days which are costing the standings dearly. After the slap in Lorient on Wednesday (3-1) in the late match of the second day of Ligue 1, Lyon lost this Sunday to Monaco (2-1), at the end of the seventh day. And let the competition (PSG, OM, Lens) take the lead at the top of the standings.

“Sylvinho taught us not to retreat from a set piece”

It was again on a set piece that Lyon cracked… and conceded the two Monegasque goals. This prompted Grégory Coupet, former OL goalkeeper and former coach of the Lyon porters, to compare the defensive work under Peter Bosz and under Sylvinho, who had led Lyon in 2019: “Sylvinho taught us not to back down on a kick. stopped foot. How I loved this coach… […] This guy had incredible charisma, infectious energy and real leadership.”

Way to say that Peter Bosz’s methods are problematic? Lyon has in any case had a very bad week and leaves feathers in its podium objectives. Expected reaction in the shock against Paris next Sunday. With maybe one or two specific training sessions to fit in this week concerning defensive positioning on set pieces.
