The attacking midfielder of Olympique Lyonnais Houssem Aouar was copiously whistled when he entered the lawn during the match against Nantes. His choice to favor the Algerian national team did not pass.

Changing sporting nationality from French to Algerian, the attacking midfielder of Olympique Lyonnais Houssem Aouar announced on March 16 that he would choose the Algerian team for the rest of his career. A decision that was not to the liking of a large part of OL supporters who decided to whistle their player during the match against Nantes. The ultras of Lyon, the bad goneseven intoned The Marseillaise.

At the end of the match and after a draw (1-1), Houssem Aouar went directly to the locker room, without greeting the public.

Houssem Aouar had once played with the Blues

Born in Lyon and having made all his classes in France, he had expressed his regret this week for having accepted the tricolor selection in 2020: “To be honest, after having chosen the France team at the time, I felt regret. I felt that I had not made the choice that was right for me personally.

Houssem Aouar had previously been selected among the French “hopes” before being called up several times in 2020 by Didier Deschamps. He had only honored one cape under the Blues.

In the short term, the midfielder had almost no chance of joining the France team because of too much competition for his position. At the end of his contract with OL, the 24-year-old is currently a substitute at his club.
