Sylvinho : « Liverpool est une équipe incroyable »
Lyon's coach spoke with OLTV about Wednesday's preseason opponent in Geneva.

How have your players been doing so far this preseason?

"When we talk about preseason, it's very important to have physical workouts. But also to accept new ideas, and it's even more important to play! We must play as soon as we have the opportunity. We only have five scheduled friendlies. We're going to play our fourth, so it's very important that players get as much time on the pitch as possible."


A formidable opponent awaits...

"Right now it feels like we're playing in the Premier League. Along with Arsenal and Bournemouth, we're playing three English clubs in one week! Liverpool is an amazing team with an incredible coach as well. They are very good players. It's a very physical team... also technical. All you have to do is watch what they did last season. They played very well."


What are the goals for this match?

"We're thinking about the team that will play against Monaco, but we haven't decided on the starting lineup yet. That will be decided next week. For now, we must especially think about the team through individualities. Most players should play 70-75 minutes. Some could maybe go all 90 minutes."
