Les Lyonnais returned to Tola Vologe on the afternoon of Wednesday 25 June, for a short meeting.



OL president Jean-Michel Aulas spoke to the players and presented their new coach Hubert Fournier. "It's like the first day of school. It's great to see that we have almost the same squad as last season. A lot of young players with plenty of ambition, as is shown by the five new contracts for the academy graduates. OL has the potential for a great season."

Hubert Fournier then spoke to present his coaching staff and the preseason schedule, before highlighting "the importance of the team and individual challenges that await the players and the coaching staff this season."

The team will be back at Tola Vologe on Thursday morning for the medical and fitness tests and get back on the pitch on Friday.
