Communiqué au sujet de l'avenir de Bruno Genesio

Jean-Michel Aulas and Bruno Genesio held a long discussion this morning in which Bruno Genesio offered to give up the possibility of extending his coaching contract in order to create a psychological element that allows the team to bounce back, beginning Friday night at Groupama Stadium against Angers.


Jean-Michel Aulas accepted the decision of Bruno Genesio, who once again showed he's guided by the sole interest of the Institution and hopes to allow those who were against his contract extension to also be behind the club Friday night.


The club thanks Bruno Genesio for his decision, which shows his real sense of responsibility. He's now counting on all players and staff to demonstrate their immense qualities and assert this same sense of responsibility in a final run-in that should allow OL, with the support of their fans, to finish on the Ligue 1 podium. 


Bruno Genesio, with the backing of his president, informed his staff and players this morning of his decision before informing the media during a press conference.
