Lisandro happy at Lyon, denies Fiorentina link
Lyon forward Lisandro Lopez has expressed his frustration at playing on the wing, but insists he has no plans to leave the club amid reports he could be moving to Fiorentina.
The Argentinian has been deployed on the left at times this season by manager Remi Garde, most recently in last Thursday's Europa League clash against Athletic Bilbao.
The 29-year-old admitted that he was "angry" with his lack of goals this season - though more with himself than his manager.
"I'm angry when I don't score enough, but it's the same for all forwards," he said. "When you don't get many shots, when you don't play at your usual position, you are frustrated.
"My coach thinks I have to play in the left for the team's balance, I respect that. I have a good relationship with Remi Garde and I don't need the press to send messages to him. Everything I tell you [the reporters], he already knows."
When asked about talk of him leaving France after three years at Lyon or a move to Serie A with Fiorentina Lopez, whose current contract runs until June 2014, said he "feels very good in Lyon and has never wanted to leave".
"The Italian papers talk about that, but I never had a call from Fiorentina, I don't think Lyon had," added the striker who scored 16 league goals last season. "I was surprised when I read that, even more when I saw I was agree with Fiorentina."
