A disappointing season. How many times has a national champion finished so far from the top places? One thing is certain, it must not have happened very often, whether in France or elsewhere in Europe. Installed in tenth position two days from the end, the Lille residents are carrying out a particularly mediocre 2021/2022 financial year, and this while the workforce has not been turned upside down that much during the summer transfer window.
Even if for the moment everything seems rather calm around the club, we suspect that once the season is over, things will change everywhere. Executives like Jonathan David or Renato Sanches will probably take to their heels. As for Jocelyn Gourvennec, it is difficult to imagine him in office for an additional season. The dailyTeam also reveals information that goes in this direction.
We must settle the future of Gourvennec
The Lille staff is already looking for a replacement for the former EAG. And Olivier Létang already has a name he likes, and which would be number one on the list: David Bettoni. A man not necessarily known in France, and yet he worked as an assistant for many years alongside Zinedine Zidane in Madrid, with Castilla and then with the first team. Discussions will soon begin.
Still, before making a concrete offer to the former Merengues, it will be necessary to settle the future of the current coach, who still has one year of contract left with the Domaine de Luchin. An interview between Létang and the coach should take place in the coming days, and that’s where everything should be settled. No doubts, LOSC wants to rebuild quickly and forget this mediocre season to say the least…
