It was no longer a surprise. Announced for some time, the dismissal of Laurent Blanc was announced by Olympique Lyonnais this Monday. Arriving on the banks of the Rhône in October 2022, the 98 world champion was fired less than a year after his arrival, he who was under contract until June 2024.
Laurent Blanc pays for his poor results. OL are in last place in Ligue 1. The former coach of the Blues (2010-2012) should receive around two million euros in compensation.

A situation that has been expected for some time as the results were poor, and hoped for by supporters for several months already. However, Jacques Vendroux does not agree. The famous journalist from Europe 1 protests on social networks.
“I find the way in which OL decided to separate from Laurent Blanc scandalous,” explains Jacques Vendroux on X, formerly Twitter. I look forward to feedback.”
And to be sure to be read, the 81-year-old sports commentator did not hesitate to mention several people. We thus find Raymond Domenech, former coach of the Blues and current president of UNECATEF, the coaches union.
Also named are Jean-Michel Aulas, former president of OL, Philippe Diallo, president of the FFF, Eric Borghini, member of the Comex of the Fédé and even journalists such as Pascal Praud or Geoffroy Lejeune, new boss of the Journal du Dimanche .
