According to journalist Dominique Séverac, Christophe Galtier “will go to Lyon this summer”, while Rudi Garcia will therefore not be retained.
“I can assure you that there is no contact made with any coach other than Rudi Garcia. Is the L1 title important in the decision to keep it or not? It would be awkward of me to say otherwise”, said Jean-Michel Aulas at a press conference on Tuesday. A warning for his coach, third in Ligue 1 eight days from the end?

It looks like it. Since last summer and the semi-final of the Champions League reached by the former OM coach, Aulas has never deviated from his initial position: meeting at the end of the season to take stock, tarnished by the defeat against PSG (2-4) before the international break, which inevitably calls into question the title hopes while OL are three points behind the Parisian leader.
Galtier will not go to Marseille
Without a title in L1, it is almost certain that Garcia will not stay in Lyon, where he is coming to the end of his contract. Who will replace him ? Aulas assures that he has not contacted any coach, but our colleague from the regional daily Le Parisien, Dominique Séverac, nevertheless declares with confidence that Christophe Galtier, who is also OL’s opponent in the title race with Lille, will be the next Lyon coach. .
“There will be a large turnover of coaches in Ligue 1 this summer. Things will change enormously, despite the Covid crisis. Galtier will leave Lille. To go to Marseille? No, he will go to Lyon. Galtier is OL’s priority for the post-Garcia period “, declared, sure of his fact, our colleague on RTL radio. If the finality remains uncertain, the former coach of the Greens is indeed a favorite.
