These players who, like Alexandre Lacazette at OL, have returned to their Ligue 1 training club


And also …

Like Alexandre Lacazette, another Lyonnais made the wiper: Steed Malbranque, left as his cadet for the Premier League in 2001 (Fulham, Tottenham, Sunderland), and returned to OL in 2012 after a brief stint with Stéphane’s rival. The former Espoirs international midfielder (42 years old today, 7 national teams) played another 130 games there until 2016, before gradually giving up playing time to Corentin Tolisso and then to Sergi Darder.

Exiles returning to the cradle also include Christophe Dugarry (left Bordeaux in 1996, returned in 2000 after AC Milan, FC Barcelona and OM) and the Parisians Nicolas Anelka (left in 1997, returned to PSG in 2000 after 2 seasons at Arsenal and one at Real Madrid) and Jérôme Leroy (left in 2000 and returned to OM after two seasons).
