Ciprian Tatarusanu : « L’OL est un club qui a la même ambition que moi »
Lyon's new goalkeeper visited Groupama Stadium, OL Le Musée and give his first interview as a member of Les Gones.

Signing with OL

"My goal was to stay in France. I like this country and the championship. I feel very good here. OL is a club that has the same ambition as me, so the choice was simple. The ambition is to win to play in Europe. I came here to play, like all players. I am always looking for competition. It's good for me and for the club. OL is a big club that has won many trophies. They fight every season to play in the Champions League."


Groupama Stadium

"I have played here three times. It's a beautiful stadium. I had good matches here. I made a very good save on a Nabil Fekir penalty."


His qualities

"I try to learn something in every training session, every game. I know how to stay calm during a match. I don't lose my focus when I do something good or something wrong."

Juninho and Sylvinho in charge

"I spoke with Juninho. He told me about the project. I know him as a player. Everyone knows his talent on free kicks. I'm lucky, I didn't play during the same era as him. It's a new challenge for him too. He told me that I was welcome here. He wished me good luck on the new season."


Working with Grégory Coupet

"I haven't spoken with him yet. I know him as a player. He was a very important goalkeeper, the most important in OL history I think. We will see how all this will happen during the first training sessions."


Léo Dubois

"I played with him at Nantes. He is a very good player. He had a good season this year. I am very happy for him. I'm not surprised that he's important to the team."
