Bosz, 58, paid the price for a dismal run of results this season. After missing out on Europe for the second time in three years, Lyon jumped out of the blocks with 13 points from a possible 15 to give hope of a return to the Champions League. But a four-match losing streak followed before Friday’s unimpressive 1-1 draw at home to Toulouse proved the final straw. “Due to the disappointing results to start the season, which is still far below the expectations and the goals set, Peter Bosz has been put on temporary leave” the club said in a statement.

It is actually the first step in the legal process of firing the Dutchman. The club said Blanc was chosen as the man to replace Bosz after talks with American businessman John Textor, who will officially complete his purchase of Lyon later this month. French champions seven years in a row at the start of this century, Lyon have since been eclipsed as Ligue 1’s leading club by Qatar-owned PSG. This year marks a decade since they last won a trophy. Last season’s eighth-place finish was the team’s worst since 1997.

Blanc inherits a team that is ninth with 14 points after 10 games. His first game will be against Rennes next Sunday. He won the Ligue 1 title in each of his three seasons as coach of PSG from 2013 to 2016. Blanc also led Bordeaux to the last of their six French titles in 2009.
