The renowned Argentine coach, Jorge Sampaoli, is close to returning to the helm. The possibility of leading crisis-stricken Lyon has been reported by Argentine journalist Gaston Edul.

Sampaoli has been without a position since September following his departure from Brazil's Flamengo due to unsatisfactory results.

His prominence largely stems from his tenure with the Argentine national team. Additionally, he has managed clubs such as Sevilla, Marseille, Atlético Mineiro, Santos, among others.

Lyon, a seven-time French champion and a dominant force in Ligue 1 in the early 2000s, is currently in the midst of a severe crisis. The team is languishing at the bottom of the league table, securing just one victory in 14 matches.

The club has parted ways with several coaches this season. In September, Laurent Blanc bid adieu to Lyon, and at the end of November, Fabio Grosso, who took over after Blanc, also exited.

Today, at 17:05 Central European Time, Lyon will attempt to improve their standings in a home match against Toulouse.
