With this in mind, the last stronghold of Lyon did not fail to pay tribute to the qualities of the young players from the Rhone group, who broke into the starting line-up and performed well. With the success they had against Marseille, Castillo Lukiba (19) and Malo Gusto (18) the title holders caught the attention of the OL goalkeeper, impressed by the calm shown by his teammates despite their young age: “It shows that the Lyon team is still present, we saw that on Tuesday with a lot of youngsters from the training center who were present against OM. I want to cheer them up, ask them to keep that rhythm and stick to this good buggy. (Castello) Lucipa, we have a feeling That he already has 200 matches in the French league, he is very comfortable with the ball, he is not afraid to fight, they have this neglect and it is the same for Malo (Gusto) »Anthony Lopez told reporters.

Castillo Lukiba and Malo Gusto, the bearers of the flag of the renewal of Lyon!

The words were largely confirmed by his coach, aware of the windfall he had. When asked about the competition between Leo Dubois (27) and Malo Gusto (18) for a right-side position, Batavian took the opportunity to point out the chance that there are many top players in this lane. Also the opportunity for the former Ajax technician to pay tribute to the performance of only 18-year-old Malo Gusto ten times since the start of the season: “It is a luxury choice, to have two outstanding players in the same position. Malo is very young, the most important thing for him is to have a consistent level, he has already learned a lot this season, but he is a person with a lot of talent, he is already playing at a high level. They are two completely different players and for a coach like me, that’s interesting.”. What about the French Angolan Castillo Lukiba? At just 19 years old, the young defender who trained at the club has not left the starting line-up since the 17th day of Ligue 1.

Benefiting in particular from the defensive errors that appeared at the beginning of the season, the person contracting until June 2025 confirms all the expectations placed on him. Top scorer against Metz club, the kid is gone again perfectly holding his place against the Fujians. What attracts the praise of his coach who did not fail to specify that some axes of progress still exist: “He’s really consistent, which is good for a young player, but even if he’s consistent, he can still do better, but that’s normal. We’re very happy anyway to see him at this level and he’s only 19, especially since it’s difficult Playing as a central defender at this age because if you make a mistake you can score a goal right in front of him. Different because you still have players behind you”. One thing is for sure, the golden youth of OL remains as much interest as ever and everything indicates that these Rhone aspirants will have a place of first choice in the club’s potential ascent to the heights of Ligue 1.
