OL: Rayan Cherki, a double to rekindle the flame


A little shelved this season, especially in Ligue 1, Rayan Cherki scored points with Peter Bosz Thursday night by slamming a double on the lawn of Brøndby.

Sometimes the seasons go by and look the same, and Rayan Cherki can confirm that. Author of 31 appearances in all competitions (4 goals, 4 caviars) last season under the orders of Rudi Garcia, the player trained at Olympique Lyonnais never really had his chance as a holder. And unfortunately, under the orders of Peter Bosz, the situation has not really changed. Appeared eight times in Ligue 1 this season, the 18-year-old has only had two starts in the league. It was rather in the Europa League that the Dutch technician used it. And Thursday evening, during the victory against Brøndby (3-1, 5th day), the main concerned was able to seize his chance.

Established in the midfield, on a side of the 4-4-2 set up by the former manager of Ajax Amsterdam, the number 18 had fun on the lawn of the Brøndby Stadion and scored a nice double (57th , 66th) to give the advantage to Gones after the opening of the score of Uhre (51st). Slimani then sealed the Lyon victory (76th) but the man of the match was indeed Rayan Cherki, all smiles at the final whistle. “It was important to us to have 15 points out of 15. We reacted well after the first goal. We have a quality group. It was the first time for some this evening. We raised our heads in the second half. We had to win for the supporters present ”, he explained in comments relayed by the club site.

Bosz: “Will he play more in Ligue 1? It will depend on his performance ”

The Gone therefore had a dream evening, especially since it broke a nice record Thursday night by becoming the youngest player of the Rhone club to score a double in the European Cup at 18 years and 100 days. With such a performance, Rayan Cherki necessarily scored points. And his coach has already mentioned the rest of the season in a press conference. “Will he play more in Ligue 1? It will depend on his performance. In the first half, he was not good, like the team, especially on the pressing, I expected something else. He played well on his goals by recovering a ball and making an individual action ”, first sent Bosz as relayed The team.

“Am I too demanding? Maybe as a coach I also see other things. He often asks for the ball in the feet, but sometimes he has to ask deeply. He has great potential. But before the break, it’s not what I expected ”, concluded the 58-year-old coach, putting a little more pressure on his young player. On the lawn of Mosson Sunday (5 p.m.) against Montpellier, OL will in any case have to return to victory in Ligue 1. And Rayan Cherki could be of great help, he who has certainly regained confidence.
