May 29, 2021-October 9, 2022. Peter Bosz’s era at Olympique Lyonnais lasted a total of 58 games in all competitions. And that was more than enough. The Dutch coach ended his time at Rhône and Saône with a record of 27 wins, 16 draws and 15 losses. With just 46% wins, he has one of the lowest success rates as Lyon manager. On Friday night, after another disappointing result (1-1 draw), the Lyon leaders decided to say goodbye. They made the news official on Sunday.
The homage of Jean-Michel Classrooms
“Given the disappointing results obtained during the start of the season, which remain well below expectations and the goals set, Olympique Lyonnais reports the protective dismissal of Peter Bosz, as coach of the professional team, as well as of Rob Maas, assistant coach, and Terry Peters, physical trainer., we could read in the press release. To replace him, Lyon opted for Laurent Blanc. During his presentation to the media yesterday afternoon, Jean-Michel Aulas wanted to send a message to Peter Bosz.
“I will start by saying that yesterday (Sunday) when we shook hands with Peter (Bosz), I shook hands with an intelligent man, who was loyal but probably fell short of the goals we had set together. The whole time he has been here, in day-to-day relations, he has been a good man. Today I would like to say that we have assumed our responsibilities. Some may think that they were late, but it is always difficult when you are an entrepreneur. For a man like me, who appreciates human relations, it is difficult to take a decision without being sure that it is the best one”..
Bosz already has a club behind his track
Fired as a precaution, the Dutch coach will therefore seek a new project, the one who was fired during his last three experiences. In fact, Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Leverkusen and therefore Olympique Lyonnais thanked him. Despite everything, Bosz, recognized for his game philosophy and his experience, continues to maintain a good rating. And even he could recover very quickly. Image reveals that he is on the Stuttgart short list, which has just parted ways with Pellegrino Matarazzo (44 years old).
The German media indicates that there have already been conversations with the 58-year-old coach. But Bosz is not the only one they have approached. Image specifies that Domenico Tedesco, Adi Hütter, Sebastian Hoeness and Gerardo Seoane have also been contacted by Stuttgart. Penultimate in the Bundesliga with only 5 points on the clock (0 wins, 5 draws and 4 losses), the German team has not won a single game this season. Therefore, Stuttgart has a new coach to restart the machine. And it could be Peter Bosz, who would therefore bounce back quickly after his failure in Lyon.
