The former Marseille, Parma, Napoli and Lyon footballer is now ruling women’s football thanks to his managerial skills with Lyon Women

Olympique Lyonnais Féminin is a project founded in 2004 by Olympique Lyonnais in the French football league.

Since then, the team has won a record 16 Division 1 championships, 9 Coupe de France, and 5 UEFA Women’s Champions League.
