Fred wants Lyon exit after being jeered

Lyon striker Fred is considering his future at the club after finding himself on the receiving end of jeers and taunts by Les Gones fans in recent matches.

The Brazil striker was booed by Lyon supporters during Saturday's 2-2 home draw with Lille, and the same thing has happened in other games at the Stade Gerland this season.

Fred came close to leaving the French champions in last season's January transfer window but ended up staying, pledging his short-term future to the club.

However, this latest episode is forcing him to again look for a move away, and he admits this could be his last season with the French giants.

"These whistles change a lot of things," said Fred, whose form has dipped over the past year because of injury problems and his failure to secure regular first-team action owing to the emergence of Karim Benzema.

"The supporters don't want me to stay. It is difficult for me - it is hard when 40,000 people whistle at you.

"I think that I will leave in June, yes. In these conditions, it is too difficult.

"Not in the January transfer window, but in June. But I won't give up trying, I want to continue working hard for the team, for the coaching staff and for myself."

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas hopes the striker can get through these latest problems and wants him to sign an extension to his contract, which runs out at the end of the season.

"Fred is a great player and I have confidence in his development here," said Aulas.

"I feel he is becoming more and more at home with us. I really hope to see him again soon so that he can extend his contract.

"And I hope this incident does not put that at risk."
