Juninho, nouveau directeur sportif, est arrivé à Lyon !
The Brazilian legend is set to begin a new chapter with Les Gones, this time in an executive capacity.

The legend is back home! Greeted in person by club president Jean-Michel Aulas as astonished onlookers observed from afar, Olympique Lyonnais icon Juninho arrived at the Lyon Saint-Exupéry airport on Sunday afternoon to write a new chapter with Les Gones. The undisputed free kick master, who spent eight seasons at OL, winning seven French league titles and a Coupe de France in the process, is set to take over as sporting director alongside new head coach and fellow Brazilian Sylvinho. Let the (second) Juninho era begin at Lyon!
