[Lyon star Houssem Aouar is keen on playing under Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola but is in no rush to leave the Ligue 1 club] It is a great European club and all players have this urge to play for the biggest European clubs, which in addition is led by Guardiola, who for me is a reference as a coach. Guardiola has seen everything before. It is extremely good to play his teams and that’s what I like, his way of seeing football.
[Aouar does not appear desperate for an immediate move] I’m still under contract with Lyon. I would like to leave a mark on the history of this club. After this season there is a new direction, a new coach [Sylvinho]. We will have to sit down and discuss the role I can have. I’m ready to have a technical leadership role. I’m a technical leader in the field and especially as a leader in the locker room, so there we go, we will discuss and then we will make decisions with the club

[Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar says he is not thinking about leaving the Ligue 1 side] I’m not thinking about by future. I’d rather think about the weeks to come. They will be important for Lyon and for us. I still have a lot to bring to the team and I’m trying not to pollute my mind by staying focused on what happens on the park
No-one saw us playing a match like that but we did it. We had belief from the start and collectively we surpassed ourselves. We can’t get carried away. I think that we’ve given ourselves a chance and we’re going to try to play our game and not to defend because if we do that, it could get very complicated
We have to win this match. There’s going to be a lot at stake, even if neither side is where they should be in the league

[Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar says he is proud that Juventus interest] I’ve listened to it all with a good deal of pride, but I repeat, I’m going to try not to pollute my mind. There’s a great end to the season to come with the club. We can win a title, eliminate a great team like Juventus and we still believe that we can finish in the top three, so we’re going to focus on that.
I’m very satisfied with the performances I have produced lately, but there a lot of important matches to come with the team and I am 100% focused on them. It all depends on how I perform on the field. It’s true that the French team are struggling a bit due to injuries or lack of playing time, but they are very big players who bring a lot to their clubs. I watch them like any football supporter, but I’m focused on what I can do
