New to Olympique Lyonnais, Italian-Brazilian defender Emerson was amazed by the level of young Lyon.
Rarely has such enthusiasm arisen from defeat. But after a very shy start to the season, OL want to believe in their lucky stars despite the 2-1 defeat against PSG. This Sunday at the Parc des Princes, the Lyonnais particularly mistreated the Parisians who had released all their stars. However, it took a goal from Mauro Icardi at the last minute to prevent OL from taking a point with the leader of Ligue 1. Many regrets therefore in terms of accounting, but also promises in terms of the game, especially with the Brazilian gang of which Emerson is obviously a part despite his Italian sports nationality. For the former Chelsea defender, his arrival in Lyon was a real revelation as regards the pool that the OL training center represents.
In a statement to the press, Emerson admits to having been amazed by the level of young Lyon. ” From my first day here, I noticed these great quality players and since then I have realized this on a daily basis. And in addition they are young, they will gain even more experience, they have enormous potential. Coming up with them every day, I admire their talent even more ”, delivered the defender who still arrives from Chelsea, and has seen many great talents pass within the London club, used to soliciting the best prospects in Europe, or even the world, in recent years. A confirmation in any case that the workforce available to Peter Bosz is of high quality, and that with time, motivation and work, a quality group can lead to it. What to hope for a rise in power over the coming weeks, as the Lyon supporters dream of after the last encouraging matches of their OL.
