The new coach of Olympique Lyonnais discusses his vision of football in an interview with The team.
After a rather successful start against Bourg-en-Bresse (5-1), Villefranche (2-0) and Wolfsburg (4-1), Olympique Lyonnais version Peter Bosz will play a new preparation match on Thursday against Villarreal in Murcia . On the eve of this meeting, the new OL coach evokes in a long interview with L’Equipe his vision of football and in particular the criticisms to which he may have been the subject as in 2017, when José Mourinho had declared “coaches like Bosz, eager to entertain people, don’t win any titles …», After the Europa League final lost by Ajax Amsterdam against Manchester United.
Guardiola’s Barca have always won when Mourinho coached Real
“After a game, it’s always easy to talk, especially when you win. He has the right, answers Peter Bosz in L’Equipe four years later. But the first goal comes from a touch that slips from the fingers of one of my players and we had a team of 21.7 years on average against United and all their stars who sought to defend their advantage … But he has from time to time lost matches, especially against attacking coaches. Guardiola’s Barça have always won when Mourinho coached Real. But I’m used to it. When an offensive coach loses a game or a Championship, it’s easy to say: “It’s not realistic”. I do not care. I know you can be successful with offensive play.“
As a spectator, with my beer in front of my TV, I like to watch these teams, not teams who defend and who counter
Introducing himself as “obsessed with football“And”curious to see Jorge Sampaoli in Marseille and Marcelo Bielsa in Leeds“, Peter Bosz continues his demonstration:”In Guardiola’s time at Bayern, there were matches where Neuer didn’t touch the ball! So it is possible. Me as a spectator, with my beer in front of my TV, I like to watch these teams, not teams who defend and who counter. Be careful, I’m not saying it’s good but it’s my way of seeing it. I liked, for example, Italy during the Euro. They played really well, attacked high, except against Spain. Mancini did a great job.“A speech that undoubtedly has something to please the supporters of Lyon, eager to reconnect with the heyday of OL in the game and success.
