According to information from the Team this Sunday, OL would have two priority tracks for next season leading to foreign technicians. Italy’s Roberto De Zerbi, stationed at Sassuolo, and Dutchman Peter Bosz, free since his dismissal in March from Bayer Leverkusen, are the two main candidates considered to take over from Rudi Garcia.
OL still do not know the name of their coach for next season. Currently in office, Rudi Garcia has not yet extended his lease with Jean-Michel Aulas’ club. If officially it has already been said that an assessment should be made at the end of the season, Garcia could not continue his adventure in the Rhône.

As L’Equipe indicated this Sunday, a lack of progress by the team and some management incompatibilities could get the better of Rudi Garcia. The name of Christophe Galtier has also been put forward in recent weeks to succeed him. If the Dogues coach ensures that he had no contact with OL, he would above all be the priority of OGC Nice, which would offer him a salary with which OL could not compete.
From Zerbi and Bosz cited
OL would remain interested in Galtier, who still has a year’s contract with LOSC, but above all would have two tracks leading to foreign coaches. At the end of his contract with Sassuolo, Roberto De Zerbi would be one of the two targets, just like Peter Bosz, fired by Bayer Leverkusen last March. The 57-year-old Dutch coach and his 41-year-old Italian counterpart are said to be among a larger list although no contact has been made yet.
Eighth in Serie A with Sassuolo, Roberto De Zerbi stood out this week in the media with a very virulent exit against the project of a European Super League. Whoever wanted at the start of the season to qualify for the next Champions League denounced a “coup” on the part of the 12 clubs involved.
While waiting for OL, the team still coached by Rudi Garcia can carry out the good operation of the weekend with a view to qualifying for the next Champions League. If successful, the Gones will return to the Mastiffs this Sunday, in a meeting scheduled at Groupama Stadium at the end of the 34th day of Ligue 1.
