He didn't come back empty-handed... Nabil Fekir returned to Groupama Stadium on Sunday for OL's Ligue 1 season opener against Amiens with the World Cup trophy in tow. Not quite yet ready for playing time, Lyon's captain took the pitch dressed in a suit along with club president Jean-Michel Aulas and Nathalie Boy de la Tour, head of the Ligue de Football Professionnel. Nearly 50,000 fans reveled in the moment, giving their hero a standing ovation, chanting songs in his honor and capping off the festivities with an emotional rendition of the Marseillaise.
