'Welcome back to the 'European Football Show' here on BT Sport. I'm James Richardson joined here of course by Julien Laurens, Rafa Honigstein. Now Julien I hear there are some interesting developments at Lyon this afternoon.'
'Well yeah there has been a lot of talk about Lyon and about them sacking Hubert Fournier after a a pretty good 2013/14 season, I mean they finished fifth which was good you know they're a good young side, but after third place in 2012/13 I think they wanted to at least stay top three. And they didn't obviously, they have a lot of good young players and they've made it clear that they want young players to be developed, and that's something really good because of course Monaco and PSG are spending the money and Lyon want to produce the next generation of French talent and with Fekir, Lacazette and Benzia-'
'Going to have to cut you off their I'm afraid Julien as a blacked out Range Rover is heading into the Lyon training complex, it appears to be whoever is in there is Lyon's new manager.'
'A press conference has been called at the Lyon training ground to annonunce who the manager will be'
Olymmpique Lyonnais chairman Jean-Michel Aulas strode briskley into the crowded Lyon press room and quickly sat down on a cushy dark blue chair he steadied himself to announce the new head coach of a Lyon, the luck journalists who had managed to grab a seat sat ready to scribble down his every word, several TV cameras were poised to pounce on what was to become of the next half hour. 'Ladies gentleman I know you want this done quick so I will announce our new head coach and you nbe able to ask no more than ten questions and then this press conference is over' Aulas said forcefully. We have parted company with Hubert Fournier due to certain expectations not being met, however we wish him the best in his future endeavors- so long as he doesn't beat us.
The media chuckled at this remark easing the tension in the air. 'It is my great pleasure to announce our new Head coach for the forthcoming 2014/15 Ligue 1 season, I am sure the fans will be pleased that our new manager is...' the audience held their breath 'club legend Juninho!'
A round of quite applause was observed for the set piece specialist
'Thank you Jean it's great to start my managing career at a club so close to my heart, I hope to grow as a manager, whilst taking Lyon back to the peak of world football.'
After a round of questions surrounding the future of players at Lyon and staff along with the relationship with his chairman and directors time was called on the press conference.
As I walked to my car I felt a cold hand grab on the back of my neck I turned round in suprise and saw Aural
'You did good today Juni you answered questions with integrity and you were assertive, that's good. Together I believe we can deliver great things for Lyon as long as you and I have faith and trust on each other'
'I agree Mr.Aural'
'please call me Jean'
'Okay, Jean, I agree we can deliver great things for Lyon I love this club and will give my all.'
'Don't let that get in your way of becoming one of the all time greats in management, I'll see you on Monday 7:00pm sharp for training.'
I walked back to my car and shivered as the cold breeze of France hit me and turned the key in the ignition to start and the headlights turned on their beam as did the rest of the lights on my dashboard, my eye caught the beauty of the night sky in Lyon which helped my thoughts drift away to the back of my mind I pulled out onto the main road and road back to my suburban home to plan out Lyon's future.
