Le point presse de Bruno Genesio avant OL - Nice
Lyon's head coach spoke to the media on the eve of Friday night's showdown with Nice.

End of the transfer window

The majority of the players are focused on the game. There may be one or two whose heads are elsewhere. We had a very good week of training. The players were very involved. We worked on managing counterattacks and facing defensive-minded opponents ... Marçal should be back on the pitch in15 days, or about three weeks


Jason Denayer 

He is ready and is competing for a starting job. The current duo of Marcelo and Jeremy Morel has been rather successful so far. It will be necessary to make choices for the good of the team.


Will Nabil Fekir start?

We will see this afternoon after the team meeting, I will discuss it with him. His return is something positive. He's an important player for us and he is our captain. Having him is a definite plus. He doesn't have an hour and a half in his legs yet.


Thoughts on Nice

If Nice had had Balotelli against Dijon, they would have won. He's a great striker and will be a plus for the team. We're not only facing one player. There will be a strong opponent facing us. The results don't reflect their game. In order to win matches, you have to play them first. You have to put all the necessary ingredients against each team ... Myziane is a talented player. Unfortunately, we haven't managed to have him flourish at home. It's too bad. He made the choice to leave. I'll be following his matches and I wish him a good career.


Mariano's departure

Just to clarify things, no one at the club wanted him to leave. He made a choice. He had a very good season with us, he scored a lot. It's part of the life of a club. When Real comes to pick a player, it's hard to ignore it. He's a guy with a lot character and confidence. He was not always very comfortable in the group.


Houssem Aouar

My trust in him remains intact. I have no doubts about his quality and his ability to have a great career. We are behind him and we know he will come back very quickly and very strong.
