Lille: Ltang gives LOSC its place – football

After the titles in Ligue 1 and in the Trophe des Champions, Olivier Ltang refuses to ignite. The president of LOSC has set reasonable goals, far from Paris Saint-Germain.

Olivier Ltang is simply aiming for a European place in Ligue 1.

Some will see it as lucidity. When others will regret a lack of ambition. In any case, Olivier Ltang is cautious before starting the season.

After the Ligue 1 title and the victory in the Trophe des Champions against Paris Saint-Germain (1-0) on Sunday, the president of LOSC sent a message to his players. And undoubtedly the press.

Ltang prefers to forget PSG

The warning could not be clearer: Lille is not a candidate for its own succession. We know that PSG are the favorite of this edition of the 2021-2022 championship with high quality reinforcements. , warned Ltang on the official site of the northern club.

Given the transfer window made by Paris Saint-Germain, it would indeed be daring to publicly challenge the Parisians. Suddenly, Lille prefers to look a little lower. Our objective is to perform over time and to qualify each year for a European competition, explained the manager. The competition is fierce at a time when clubs need to rethink their model. This is why Ltang sees a long list of teams capable of competing with his LOSC.

LOSC’s competitors

Our competitors are Monaco, Marseille, Lyon, Rennes and Nice with always one or two clubs which can also get involved in the fight. , quoted the Lille president, eager to keep a sufficiently competitive group knowing that the Mastiffs will play in the Champions League. It is therefore with many heroes from last season that Lille is approaching this new exercise. Players who Ltang asks to keep the displayed values ​​under the former trainer Christophe Galtier, predecessor of Jocelyn Gourvennec.

But for the rest, the boss wants to draw a line on this dream season. If we think that we have become another club and if we forget what makes our strength, then the season could be difficult, let loose the former president of Rennes. The title of champion of France won last season is something formidable for all the actors who have lived it and who are linked to life by these motions. But he is now behind us. LOSC is now opening a new chapter. The parenthesis is firm.
