This Friday evening, OL took the best of Ajaccio (2-1) for their entry into the running in Ligue 1. Johann Lepenant will have produced a very good performance.
OL are carrying out an ambitious transfer window this summer. Les Gones want to play the leading roles in Ligue 1 again and are giving themselves the means for the moment. Four very talented players have joined Peter Bosz’s troops: Alexandre Lacazette, Corentin Tolisso, Nicolas Tagliafico and Johann Lepenant. The former SM Caen midfielder had his first Ligue 1 match this Friday evening against Ajaccio. And the least we can say is that Lepenant was strong, very strong. So much so that even his teammates don’t have a rate of praise on his profile. It is not Alexandre Lacazette who says the opposite…
Lepenant, it’s already very strong
The simplicity of the game of Castello Lukeba or Johann Lepenant is to be shown to all soccer apprentices

Asked about the antenna free league 1 after OL’s victory against Ajaccio (2-1), the Lyon captain spoke about Lepenant. “He’s impressive, it’s true. It’s his best match in the Lyon jersey, even if he didn’t do much. I think he raised his level. I am the first surprised. I am the first happy for him. He freed himself as the match progressed and helped the whole team. It’s a good game from him. He is very strong “, Lacazette said in particular, content to be able to count on a player of Lepenant’s talent for the rest of the season. Note that Peter Bosz, despite the arrival of the former Caen player, still wants another number 6 to come. William Carvalho could be the lucky one, he who would come to OL in an exchange with Houssem Aouar. The summer transfer window is still far from over and a lot of changes are still to be expected in the Rhône. In the meantime, Peter Bosz’s men will have to get back to work to prepare for their second day of Ligue 1 against FC Lorient.
