- New reports have claimed that Alexandre Lacazette had a falling out with Lyon manager Peter Bosz over tactics
- The disagreement came in the aftermath of Lacazette’s first goal since rejoining the club on a free transfer from Arsenal
- The striker is said to have been backed by other players who have found it hard to understand the former Borussia Dortmund manager’s tactics
Former Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette is apparently at loggerheads with his new head coach at Olympique Lyonnais, Peter Bosz.
Lacazette rejoined the club this summer, having left them for Arsenal in 2017 on a free transfer. He has since scored the first goal of his second stint in a friendly match against Feyenoord.
Get Football News France reports that it was during the halftime of the match against Feyenoord that the disagreement arose. Lacazette is said to have been on different pages with the head coach over tactics.
The report further claims that a number of players backed Lacazette’s stance. It is understood that many players do not understand Bosz’s game plan.
However, taking to social media, Lacazette appeared to reject those claims by commenting ‘waaaaaw’ with a couple of other seemingly dissenting emojis.
Bosz has been under fire after his team were battered by Willem II 5-0. He was fuming during the post-match conference, as the Mirror reports.
You can’t lose 5-0 against a team like Willem II, but this defeat is deserved. We were very bad, we played badly.
The Dutch manager will be under pressure in the upcoming season to deliver after his side finished a lowly 8th and thus out of the European qualification places.
