  • Mbappe steals the show
  • Home side bottom of Ligue 1
  • Fans make feelings known


    That setback, which came on home soil, has dropped the seven-time champions of French football to the foot of the Ligue 1 table. Kylian Mbappe bagged a brace against them on Sunday, with Achraf Hakimi and Marco Asensio also hitting the back of the net.


    Corentin Tolisso’s second-half penalty proved to be little consolation for Lyon as they reflect on taking one point from a possible 12 at the start of the 2023-24 campaign. Lyon’s players stood in front of the famous Virage Nord at the Groupama Stadium after suffering another heavy loss, with the Bad Gones ultras group making their feelings clear to those that are underperforming on the field.


    One of the ultras leaders addressed the Lyon squad through a megaphone, saying: “To the Olympique Lyonnais 2023-2024 squad, this message is addressed to you. To those who assume the status of dressing-room leaders, the message is clear: If there are leaders in this dressing room, they no longer have the right to remain silent. You're wearing the Olympique Lyonnais jersey. You're the ones who wear the Olympique Lyon jersey. Others before you have worn it, glorified it. You don't have the right to tarnish it. Now that the transfer window is over, the squad is here. All we ask is to be by your side.

    “But to do that, you're going to have to earn it. We love and respect this shirt. There's only one other thing we ask: to sing your names. Sing them with love, not like we sang the names of the little *******. who have left our club in the last six months. We want to sing your names with respect, with love. Because we know you play with love. But we expect you guys to respect our jersey, and if we have to take our losses to do so with our heads held high. Go OL.”



    Lyon will be back in action next Sunday when playing host to Le Havre, with head coach Laurent Blanc – who has won just 17 of his 37 games the helm – already under mounting pressure as he fights to keep his job.
