Lyon block Fekir from discussing Barça’s reported interest in him
Olympique de Lyon’s star man, Nabil Fekir, wasn’t allowed to respond to a question about FC Barcelona’s interest in signing him.
The player was told by the club’s press officer that he couldn’t respond to the inquiry and that the only topic for today was the match against Barça tomorrow evening at the Camp Nou.
Fekir was respectful and responded by saying: « It’s a pleasure to play at a mythical stadium like the Camp Nou. We accompany a target: we have an essential match which we’re prepared for. »
The midfielder admitted the clash with Barça is one of the most important of his career and that F.C Barcelona were favourites to go through.
Feklir refused to give up and mentioned the shock victories for Ajax and Manchester United already in this round.
« The facts confirm that unexpected outcomes make you think. We’re here to do our job and we know it’s going to be a complicated task. »
