A strong choice, and which will get people talking... Brilliant with the France Espoirs team but on alternating current with OL, Rayan Cherki does not appear in the Lyon group (23 players) revealed this Saturday for the trip to Marseille on Sunday evening (8:45 p.m.), during the 10th day of Ligue 1. As reported by various sources, Cherki nevertheless trained with the rest of his teammates this Saturday, on the eve of the match. The Parisian assures that the person concerned is simply dismissed by his trainer, Fabio Grosso. Which Cherki is therefore expected on Sunday at the OL training center for a training session with the rest of the players not called up by the Italian technician. This is for example the case of former Marseillais Duje Caleta-Car and recent Arsenal defector Ainsley Maitland-Niles.
Still looking for a first success in 2023-24, Olympique Lyonnais is going through a major crisis. Grosso's players, the latter having succeeded Laurent Blanc, occupy the unenviable position of bottom of the L1 standings, with a meager total of three points (3 draws, 6 defeats).
