OLTV : The best of Bafétimbi Gomis on OLNS
A review of your time at Lyon
I have no regrets even if there are things I would have liked to have done differently. I was young, and I learned. OL have been a very important club for my career. I played at the very highest level for five years. I used my Lyon experience for the rest of my career. The words of Jean-Michel Aulas and Bernard Lacombe keep resonating with me. I had great meetings with them and that's why I decided to move there. Coming from Saint-Etienne, I knew I was going up a level. I knew the area very well. It was the best choice for me to progress in my career. There was a little time of adaptation, and I had to show myself on a human level. The supporters were very demanding but it kept me at a top level.
A notable coach?
We learn something from every coach. I can't name one. All of them have impressed me, whether it was Claude Puel, Rémi Garde or Rudi Garcia. I learned from each coach. I had more connections with some. It was a real pleasure to work with them. The person who most impressed me at Olympique Lyonnais is Bernard Lacombe. He often helped me with difficult situations. He meant a lot to me.
