OL would have given an ultimatum to Peter Bosz!

What’s next after this ad

Arrived in May 2021 with an impressive CV, Peter Bosz, renowned for his attacking and attractive philosophy of play, seemed to be the ideal man to succeed Rudi Garcia and give a boost to Lyonnais lacking in inspiration. Yes, but now, since then, the former coach of Ajax Amsterdam and Borussia Dortmund has not convinced. Worse still, he failed in a sad eighth place last season, depriving OL of all European competitions. Renewed this season despite these poor performances, the Batavian technician promised to put a smile on the face of Rhone supporters. It is clear that this is not the case.

Beaten in his last two outings in Ligue 1, against FC Lorient (1-3) then on the Rock against AS Monaco (2-1), Peter Bosz is unable to find the right formula. Symbol of the flaws in the Bosz method, with the defeat against the Monegasques, the 58-year-old tactician now has more matches not won, 28 (15 draws and 13 losses), than wins (27) in 55 games on the bench Rhone. Worrying statistics which do not seem to panic, however, beyond measure, the main interested party: “if I am under pressure? Not at all. Why would I be under pressure? Explain me […] I know we just lost two games in a row, it can happen […] we didn’t see it in the score, but I think we don’t deserve to lose today.”declared, in this sense, Bosz at the microphone of Prime Video after the defeat in asemist lands.

OL are starting to get impatient!

Present, this Thursday, at a press conference, the Director of Football, Vincent Ponsot, however wanted to send a certain pressure to the Dutchman: “Critics, we hear them, we can understand them. After us, we are more on medium-long term approaches (…) Last season was not good and we decided, because we did an analysis, to keep Peter (Bosz) in place. And we were convinced of our choice. On the other hand, of course, there is a requirement for results. We have changed the workforce, the state of mind, we have changed a lot of things in agreement with him, we believe that there is everything today to perform. And so we expect results. But we don’t work by saying that if something happens on Sunday, we will make such a decision. Peter has goals to fulfill set for the World Cup break (15th day), he has goals for the 19th day that have existed since the start with passing times. These objectives will remain between Peter and us. The requirement, we have it vis-à-vis him and he has this same requirement vis-à-vis himself. He is fully aware of this situation and that we will not wait until February or March..

A clear message inevitably placing Bosz under pressure before receiving the Ile-de-France club. In today’s edition, The Team moreover specifies that the Lyonnais coach would have, according to sources close to the club, until mid-November, that is after OL-Nice, to bring the Rhone formation back on the podium. After this time without reaching the set objective, his place will then be in danger. With this in mind, the daily also adds that the next meetings against PSG then against RC Lens will be decisive for the Batavian. Two new poor performances could then definitively seal the fate of the former Bayer Leverkusen technician…
