For the first time in Ligue 1, Gédéon Kalulu will face OL. Against his training club, the defender wants to make a move like against Rennes.

It’s a first without really being one. Since leaving theOL three years ago, Gideon Kalulu has already crossed swords with his training club. It was in the Coupe de France with Ajaccio in February 2021 and the side does not necessarily keep good memories with a large defeat (5-1). Nevertheless, those who have never had a chance in Lyon will be able to be satisfied with the progress made this Wednesday evening when entering the lawn of Moustoir.

Since the start of the season, he has finally tasted Ligue 1 and therefore found OL for the first time in the top flight, without bitterness. « My personality reflects my journey. I hang on, I try to do the best I can on the pitch. I’m surly, he lists in the columns of the Telegram. Mentally, when you’re a competitor, you know there will be tough times. There was disappointment, but we had to bounce back, move forward. It’s not just OL. »

Decisive in the victory against reindeer on the first day, Gideon Kalulu will find « friends of the training center » Wednesday night with Rayan Cherki or Maxence Caqueret. This late match will also be a good test for both theOL only for Lorient after a good start. « I don’t think they’re fully in place, with adjustments in progress. It’s up to us to take advantage of these little details. OL are a big team, but you shouldn’t be afraid of hurting them. When you respect too much these teams, that’s where they hurt us and the game becomes complicated. »
