Speaking to Prime Video following Lyon’s 1-1 draw against Toulouse, striker Alexandre Lacazette (31) refused to defend under-fire manager Peter Bosz. 

Lyon are winless in their last five matches, and during that time, have picked up one point. Having been backed during the summer transfer window, Les Gones poor start to the season is putting Dutch manager Bosz under considerable pressure. According to reports, Bosz has been given a difficult points target to hit before the World Cup. Whilst it is not yet mathematically impossible to reach that target, it is looking increasingly unlikely that he will reach it. 

As well as criticising Bosz’s decision to take off strike partner Moussa Dembélé (26) during the draw, Lacazette also questioned whether the manager’s instructions were getting through to his teammates. In an interview transcribed by Foot Mercato, he said, “Persoanlly, [his philosophy] is clear. I know what he wants. I can’t speak for every player. In any case, when you watch the match this evening, I don’t think everything is clear to everyone. That’s what is a shame.”

Asked if he wants Bosz to remain as coach, Lacazette appeared ambivalent. “I just want to win matches, but it’s the board that decides. I am here to play. I give everything I can to these colours, to the club,” he said.
