Asked if last night was his goodbye to the Groupama Stadium, Fekir, 24, said: “Farewell? Frankly, I don’t know.

“I spent an exceptional season here with players, fans and the staff. We ended up in beauty.

“You have to pass a course, it is true. I think I gave everything to Lyon.

“Now it is time to look into the future.”
