Why has Lucas Paqueta become the darling of Lyon supporters for good?


At Parc OL,

Does Stéphanie Frappart hate and the rooming that she entails in the background? The referee retained for the last Euro seems in any case to have asked for explanations from Lucas Paqueta on Wednesday after his spectacular gesture attempted against Giulian Biancone, in the stoppage of play of OL-Troyes (3-1). The Brazilian international ended up collecting a yellow card from the sky, the same sanction in the end as Jimmy Giraudon (28th), author of a terrible tackle on Lucas Paqueta. “What do you want me to tell you?” I too would like to understand his decision, “loose the twirling midfielder.

Current Ligue 1 co-top scorer, the 24-year-old is perhaps in the best period of his young career, as evidenced by his right-footed goal against ESTAC (3-1, 87th). “I work a lot in training, and today I am reaping the benefits”, comments soberly the person concerned, who has seen his role evolve with the replacement of Rudi Garcia by Peter Bosz. “When I arrived at OL, I announced that I was going to give my all for this team,” he recalls. Before, I was a little further back on the pitch and there I have more offensive opportunities. “

A song in his honor rocketed from the north bend against Troyes

So much so that his surgical finishes after sharp calls have been linked since the resumption (4 goals in 7 L1 games, against 9 in 30 last season), including with the right foot as on Wednesday. Enough to allow this major rookie of 2020 stamped Juninho (just like his accomplice in the middle Bruno Guimaraes) to gradually transform into the new darling of the turns of the Parc OL. Never, since the improbable aria dedicated to Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa in the spring of 2016, the Bad Gones had chanted a song to a Lyon player during this period of disenchantment, not even his essential leader Memphis Depay. Lucas Paqueta had this honor for several minutes, Wednesday night against Troyes.

“I am surprised to receive such support and such warmth from the supporters,” confides the endearing man in the 23 capes with the Seleçao. Even in Flamengo, I haven’t experienced that. I want to thank this audience and I hope to return this love to them. “That this licensed dancer does not worry too much, he amazes everyone at each exit, including Thierry Henry, by his unparalleled volume of play for a number 10.” I am prepared for everything before each match: to score goals like defending, ”he sums up. “At the same time a warrior and Michelangelo”, formulated it in January
for 20 minutes Mauricio Barbieri, his former coach at Flamengo. An explosive cocktail that is making Lyon vibrate more and more.
