Yoann Gourcuff moves to Lyon
French international Soccer player Yoann Gourcuff recently made a transfer from Bordeaux to Lyon with hope of competing in this year’s Champions League. Gourcuff and teammate Chamakh were a formidable force at Bordeaux and they reached the quarter finals in last year’s UEFA Champions League. This year Bordeaux failed to qualify for the tournament and its legendary coach Laurent Blanc left to pick up the pieces of the French National Team which fell into disarray at the World Cup. Marouane Chamakh, striker for Bordeaux, also left to play at Arsenal and added to Yoann’s decision to move to Lyon but still continue in the French League. Lyon has always been one of my favorite teams, especially during the time Juninho played, a time that saw incredible if not impossible free-kick goals against Barcelona, Real Madrid, and Bayern. Hopefully now with Gourcuff they can reach farther in the tournament. Nevertheless, I will always miss how Gourcuff and Chamakh synchronized plays and specially how adorably they celebrated their success at Bordeaux.
