Communiqué de presse
Olympique Lyonnais announce that, following the defeat at Angers and discussions with the board and coach Peter Bosz, it has been decided that Marcelo will train, with immediate effect, with the PRO 2 squad (reserves), which is made up of many other players under professional contract and managed by Gueida Fofana and Jérémie Bréchet, under the direct supervision of Peter Bosz and his staff.

The inappropriate behavior of Marcelo in the locker room after the match in Angers justifies this decision, which was taken unanimously by Olympique Lyonnais' management team.

The player was briefed on this decision yesterday afternoon by Juninho and Peter Bosz.

Olympique Lyonnais' management reiterates that all of its players must demonstrate an unwavering mindset and a commitment to quickly return to recording results in line with the club's ambitions.

Olympique Lyonnais would also like to point out that its management team is actively working on several specific recruitment targets, in close consultation with coach Peter Bosz and wants to implement a relevant and coherent transfer strategy, without giving into  media pressure, in order to take the best opportunities while also considering the current market and the resources available to the club to make good on its ambitions.
