Lyon dismiss Jean-Luc Vasseur

Lyon dismiss Jean-Luc Vasseur after the elimination of the Women’s Champions League in the quarter-finals. Sonia Bompastor will replace him as head coach until June 2023.

Lyon failed to qualify for the Women’s Champions League semi-final against PSG, after 5 consecutive titles in the competition. Vasseur dismissal came after internal discussion after elimination, where other reasons, like absences of Griedge Mbock and Ada Hegerberg, long-term injuries to COVID-19, also popped up. The 52-year-old coach joined Lyon in 2019, and brought the 5th consecutive Champions League title, French Championship and a French Cup.

Sonia Bompastor has been a director of the Lyon women’s academy since 2013. The 40-year-old former French international takes over the team with which she played for 6 seasons, winning 6 French championships, 3 French Cups and 2 Champions League titles including the club’s first title ever in 2011.
