Communiqué de presse
OLYMPIQUE LYONNAIS have read the article published yesterday by L'Equipe regarding a civil action brought before the Lyon High court against Ferland MENDY and the club by a "Lawyer / sports agent".

OLYMPIQUE LYONNAIS are first and foremost surprised by this attitude of announcing through the press a court summons that hasn't been delivered yet and giving a one-sided and inaccurate version of the facts.

OLYMPIQUE LYONNAIS, who deny all talks with "the Lawyer, sports agent in question", are also surprised by the tardiness of this action, since the Ferland MENDY transfer dates back to June 29, 2017.

OLYMPIQUE LYONNAIS have always conducted transfer operations in compliance with the rules and do not intend to open a media debate with "the lawyer / sports agent" in question and will instead allow due process to play out..
