Not summoned to Peter Bosz’s group for the meeting of his Olympique Lyonnais against Troyes on Friday, Houssem Aouar responded to rumors on social networks.
Thursday evening, the Rhone club set fire to the powder during the announcement of the group summoned for the match OL – ESTAC, counting for the third day of Ligue 1. If the absences of Lopes, Boateng or Dembélé did not surprise anyone , that of Houssem Aouar surprised a lot of Lyon supporters. Especially since OL gave no explanation to justify the sidelining of the group of their number 8. If some Lyon followers quickly put this absence on the account of the uncertain situation of the middle of 24 years in this period of transfer window, another story has circulated through Hugo Guillemet.
Aouar responds to Hugo Guillemet
I was just in care today and practically all week…(ankle) call me when you want to write about me 😉

A follower of OL for the newspaper L’Equipe, the journalist actually unsheathed a tweet in the wake of the group’s announcement to say that it was Peter Bosz who would have chosen to voluntarily dismiss Aouar for this match at the Groupama Stadium. “No Aouar because the coach’s sporting choice, nothing to do with a transfer. All other backgrounds are available », simply launched Guillemet on his Twitter account. Information quickly denied by Aouar himself, who did not hesitate to take out his smartphone to answer the journalist. “I was just in treatment today and almost all week… (ankle). Call me when you want to write about me”replied the Gone.
Aouar “in the infirmary as a precaution”
A thesis half confirmed by Foot Mercato, which explains that OL simply decided to leave Aouar “in the infirmary as a precaution” for this weekend. Logical when you know that the potential future Algerian international could be on the way over the next few days. Abandoned by Nottingham Forest, Aouar still has a good track in the Premier League, where Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace has sights on him at the end of the transfer window. While waiting to learn more about his future, it is therefore from the stands of Groupama Stadium that Aouar will attend OL – Troyes, a match which could therefore be his last as a Lyonnais.
