Although the Lyon coach still feels that his health is not good, he is eager to return to the field after this incident: “I wish that my face was not shared around the world and I wish that there was no face. Everyone has the same problem as me. That should never happen.”
“We passed a place where there were a lot of stones on the sidewalk because of the construction going on and that’s not normal. Banning fans from the stadium won’t solve the problem. They have to have a way.” project for improving security.”
