Speaking in an interview with Russia Today yesterday in Moscow, Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas discussed the future of Nabil Fékir.
“It was expected at a certain point for him to go to Liverpool, I gave the green light. It did not happen because things were dragged out too long. Nabil is an exceptional player, in terms of effectiveness. We saw yesterday (vs. Peru), his ability to hold onto the ball in tight spaces is completely unique. It is true that the fact that things did not happen with Liverpool has brought about other clubs to manifest an interest, not just Real Madrid with their new manager… my aim is make sure he stays. I have always listened to what players want, because in terms of relationship for me they are very much my children, my sons. I hope he will stay, but if he absolutely wants to leave, we will find the biggest club deserving of his effectiveness.”
