Laurent Blanc does not rule out changing the system in the coming weeks. Franck Passi, his assistant at OL, revealed that the 3-5-2 had been chosen urgently, to align the elements that the technician wanted to see on the lawn.
During an interview granted to the television channel of OL, Franck Passi gave details on the tactical plan used in recent matches. The objective was to associate the players that the former coach of the Blues wanted to establish: “In the emergency, we had to find a solution to be able to play the players that Laurent wanted. Systems today are just numbers. At some point, the team finds itself 3 behind if the pistons are high, conversely if they are playing low »told the former OM coach to the Rhone media.
“Is Tagliafico a defender? Attacker? »
The staff could decide to change strategy in the coming weeks: “The 3-5-2 has more of an offensive philosophy. We saw Nicolas (Tagliafico) make two passes against Rennes and be in the box on the goal in Montpellier. Is he a defender? Attacker? I think every player has an area with offensive and defensive roles. Above all, we want to transmit the philosophy of what we want to do. Today it’s 3-5-2 and maybe tomorrow it will be something else.he added.
Laurent Blanc and his staff have so far spent 2 games on the OL bench. Their team lost on the ground of Rennes (2-3), October 16, before winning the duel against Montpellier, at La Mosson, October 22. The Lyonnais currently occupy the 8e position in the Ligue 1 standings, 10 points behind on the podium. Their next meetings are scheduled against Lille (October 30), OM (November 6) and Nice (November 11): the Lyon eleven will have to be up to speed quickly!
