On the sidelines of the match against Monaco Friday night, Sylvinho unveiled the identity of the future captain of Olympique Lyonnais.

And while goalkeeper Anthony Lopes was among the favorites, Jason Denayer won the favor of Brazil's new OL coach. A cheeky choice since it had been years and years since Lyon had not had an untrained captain at the club, the last having been Gonalons, Lopes and Fekir. But for Daniel Riolo, this choice is quite respectable, the Belgian emerges a serenity and a significant strength within the defense for more than a year now.

"Jason Denayer captain, it's a great choice. I love this guy who has everything but the appearance of a great player and yet he is a real good player. He has this kind of nonchalance with his pace of guy who goes to two by the hour. But he is still well placed, he is really an excellent defender. It's a very good choice in my opinion. There was a revolution this summer so she continues, with an untrained player at the club who has been named captain " has appreciated Daniel Riolo, for whom Sylvinho has all good since his arrival in Lyon. To be confirmed with the reception of the SCO of Angers, Friday at Groupama Stadium.
