Will Remi Garde make a return to Lyon?

A few years ago, Remi Garde helped Lyon in winning successive Ligue 1 titles and after having taken charge of the French club for around 3 years, Garde opted to become the coach of the Premier League club Aston Villa but things turned out to be a disaster for Garde as he led the English squad to 13 defeats and only 3 victories.

After only 4 months, Remi Garde left the managerial position at Aston Villa and now Garde is out of job but it’s believed that Lyon are interested on bringing him back.

Lyon has recently had a switch of managers as Bruno Genesio was selected as the new manager of the club back in December of 2015 and so far things have been going superbly for the French coach as Lyon are in the top spots of the French League and even managed to claim a triumph against the champions of France, PSG.

Bruno Genesio is snatching consistent results as the manager of Lyon but the president of the French club, Jean-Michel Aulas admitted that he would be open on the possibility of seeing Remi Garde making a return.

Jean-Michel Aulas said: "We now need to structure it in the English manner with a great general manager who looks after the sport side of things. If Garde called me tomorrow... He's a child of the club, of the house. Shout it from the rooftops; it would help me a lot."

Genesio is currently in charge of Lyon until the end of the season but his contract with the French club might be extended depending on how things turn out in the current campaign. However, if Genesio is not interested in managing Lyon beyond this season, then there is a realistic possibility of seeing Remi Garde making a return to his former club.
