Maxime Gonalons: Prepared to snub interest in favour of remaining in France

Reports in Italy had suggested that a deal to take the France international to Italy was close, with Lyon prepared to sell in order to free up funds.

The 24-year-old holding midfielder has, however, always maintained that he is not looking for a move.

He has played down talk of a switch to Arsenal and has now moved to bring an end to the Serie A switch rumours.

Gonalons told Radio RMC: "The situation is clear. I'll stay in Lyon this year because I have to try and learn many things. I want to win with Lyon.

"I have been approached and it's always nice to know that big European clubs are following me, but I understand that the club want to keep me.

"That is good news because it shows that they have big faith in me."

Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
