Jason Denayer: “The Olympics have the team fighting for the title”

The Lyon defender believes that the club has the means to fight against PSG for the title despite the various departures in recent days.

When Jason Denayer was present at a press conference at the end of the late Ligue 1 match against Montpellier on Tuesday, he was ambitious when he talked about the season’s goals. For the defender of the Olympics, the Rhône club has everything needed to be able to fight for the race for the championship title.

“We have the team to play for the title, after that it is up to us to show it on the pitch and to have the character required to win first place.”

“In the final of the Coupe de la Ligue, there was a collective clique that we held in the Champions League and we try to put it in place in the league.”

In the event of victory in Montpellier, Olympique Lyonnais could temporarily take first place in the championship. But can the current Mercato play a role in Lyon’s points in Hérault? Denayer admits that the situation is strange, he who is announced on the side of Naples.

“When you lose players, it’s a bit difficult. But it’s the club’s responsibility to fill in departures. We have a lot of quality in the workforce and there are young players who are ready to start.”
