Ex-Lyon coach Genesio: Fekir very frustrated failing to join Liverpool

Former Lyon coach Bruno Genesio says Nabil Fekir should follow him out the club.

Genesio is leaving OL as his contract expires next week.

And he said, "Nabil arrives at the end of a cycle in Lyon. He proved a lot of things. I think he needs to know another challenge, to push his limits, to also have a questioning.

"Because we know, we always need a personal challenge in a career. Nabil was very frustrated by his non-transfer to Liverpool a year ago."

Liverpool are again being linked with Fekir after a deal last year collapsed over medical concerns.
