Sylvinho and company get to work as OL's preseason begins
The summer holiday is officially over! Off since the end of May, several Lyon squad members checked in at the Groupama OL Training Center Thursday for the first day of preseason. The staff led by new head coach Sylvinho put the wheels in motion ahead of the 2019/20 campaign.
The Brazilian, who arrived in June along with compatriot and club legend Juninho as sporting director, now has a sizable amount of the squad to start preparations for the challenges that await in the upcoming days, weeks and months.
As is the case every year, the remaining players will report for duty in due time, as they've been given additional time off because of national team commitments during the summer break.
