Report: Lacazette has falling out with Lyon manager Peter Bosz
Alexandre Lacazette may have only left Arsenal less than two months ago, but it seems that he is off to a rocky start back at Lyon, with Foot Mercato reporting that he has already had a falling out with manager Peter Bosz.
Lacazette returned to Lyon after an underwhelming end to his Gunners career. He fell out of favour towards the end of last season. Mikel Arteta instead turned to Eddie Nketiah to lead the line in the final weeks of the campaign.
That meant that there was little debate regarding whether the Frenchman would leave. And he did indeed move on, returning to Ligue 1 after five years away.
It has however, been a very mixed start to pre-season for Lyon. Ahead of their clash with Feyenoord, they were beaten 3-0 and 5-0 by Anderlecht and Willem II respectively.
They actually got the 2-0 victory against Feyenoord, with Lacazette getting on the scoresheet. However, the game did not pass without incident.
According to Foot Mercato, Lacazette got into a disagreement with Bosz at half-time. And some of the players took the side of the striker.
The report claims that the heated argument was not insignificant. And some of the squad have been left confused by Bosz’s tactics over the last few weeks.

It appears that the situation was building for a little while. So it is probably a positive that it came to a head midway through what proved to be a win for Lyon.
But obviously, Lacazette may be a little concerned after leaving Arsenal. Lyon finished eighth last year. And the signs are not too positive at this stage.
It must be noted that Lacazette has since taken to Twitter to hit out at the reports that there is any rift.
