Juninho : « Bruno Guimaraes est d’accord avec nous »
OL's sporting director Juninho spoke after the win against Toulouse.

The win against Toulouse

"We haven't won much at home. The first half was not very good. The pace of the passing was too slow. We lacked a little concentration too. The coach talked a lot before the match. We were able to control the match after the break. You have to do even better at home. It's attitude that counts too. We've been better since the start of the year and we're more creative. I hope that we will continue in this direction.


The negotiations with Bruno Guimaraes

"It’s 95% done. He has signed the transfer agreement, this is the most important thing. He reached a deal with us. But he is in Colombia with the Brazilian confederation. He cannot come and sign. I spoke with the president and it should be signed on Wednesday. I'm going to Colombia on Tuesday. The only thing missing is the medical examination. I spoke with his parents and they are happy. I hope we can announce on Wednesday that Bruno Guimaraes has joined Lyon. Technically, he's very comfortable with the ball. He has great vision in the match. He works a lot and keeps up his pace for 90 minutes. I hope it will bring us success in the long term. He is young and it is the first transfer of his life. His aggressiveness and his desire will help us. "


The end of the mercato?

"He will be the last recruit ... We were counting on Oumar Solet. Joachim Andersen has taken some time to adjust and he is young. He has played some good matches. We have three good central defenders. I also believe in the academy players, especially Diomandé and Pierre Kalulu. The three recruits will bring us to a good level. They wanted to come to OL and that’s important. "
