Lyon's leaders love light. John Textor in the lead. From the final whistle and the validated success against OM (1-0) on Sunday evening at the end of a low-level “Olympico”, the big boss of Olympique Lyonnais could not help but slip a few words on Prime Video’s microphone. Logical some would say, given the XXL transfer window this winter (7 recruits, more than €50M investment) and after a catastrophic start to the season. Out of place for others, more concerned with discretion and the long road that remains to be covered for OL, 16th in Ligue 1 after 20 days. A rank unworthy of the club's status.
On his X account (formerly Twitter), the American businessman posted a video of the Rhone locker room, happy to celebrate the success against the Marseille rival. “Step by step... Go OL” (step by step) wrote Textor, without adding any more. A message relayed by Jean-Michel Aulas, present Sunday evening at Groupama Stadium. Who allowed himself to get a little more excited.

“This is the real start of the adventure made by John and Eagle: I wish you the best for our OL and all its supporters. THANKS." The historic president, who never stopped criticizing the first steps of his successor, now seems more inclined to praise him. Everything moves very quickly in football.
