The reasons that pushed Juninho to leave OL faster than expected


This time, it is confirmed: the Brazilian will leave OL this winter and not at the end of the season. And here’s what prompted him to give up his apron prematurely.

Between Juninho and Olympique Lyonnais, it’s well and truly over. While the Brazilian had announced his probable departure at the end of the season on November 17, The team rocked a pavement in the pond by announcing yesterday that the sporting director of Gones would finally go away this winter. Information that the main concerned confirmed a few hours later to the sports daily. “It’s better so that the club is already preparing the next step and I also need to stop. “

Since then, OL leaders have been looking for his successor and several profiles have been listed. The Rhone club will now have to find common ground with its future ex-sports director whose CDI is paid up to € 150,000 per month. Not bad for someone who has never held this position.

But Juni shouldn’t be a problem, his desire to cut is so strong. The newspaper even indicates that all those having crossed it since this announcement find it relieved of a weight. But what prompted Juninho to throw in the towel so quickly? If some of his choices, such as the appointment of Sylvinho, have been criticized and his stormy relationship with Rudi Garcia has not helped, the Brazilian simply seems to have discovered that he was not (yet) armed for a position of power.

Juninho did not take the measure of his position

He who likes to talk game with the players and who is often dictated by his emotions, the Brazilian would perhaps have been perfect in the role occupied by Bernard Lacombe, namely that of sports advisor. But for his duties as sports director, it did not stick. Moreover, it should be remembered that Rudi Garcia had publicly criticized him for walking on his flower beds.

For not having been able to take the measure of his position, Juninho therefore experienced an ordeal. Besides, The team specifies that he did not appreciate the enthronement of Vincent Ponsot to the post of director of football. A number 2 who has often imposed his decisions on him. Clearly, Juninho did not know how to define the political dimension of his new post.
