OL Fondation : un mercredi pas comme les autres pour les enfants de Sport dans la Ville !
Mercredi dernier, les joueurs de l’Olympique Lyonnais ont réservé une incroyable surprise aux enfants de l’association Sport dans la Ville !

As they do every Wednesday, some thirty children gathered at the But en Or football pitch in Décines to participate in a session moderated by educators from the Sport dans la Ville association. But this wasn't your average Wednesday...  



Memphis Depay, Tanguy NDombele, Bertrand Traore and Moussa Dembele left the first-team session join the children on the ground, located a few steps from the Groupama OL Training Center. Emotions and excitement soon took over the youngsters, who couldn't contain their joy at meeting their heroes!

Memphis, Tanguy, Bertrand and Moussa then took part in the game alongside the children, delighted to be able to play football with these football stars. An unforgettable moment that will be remembered especially the young Kais, who scored a goal with the help of his favorite player, Memphis Depay, before hugging the Dutch star. 

To close out the afternoon, each child had the chance to share a special moment with the players, getting personalized autographs in the process.
