PARIS: Brazil’s Sylvinho, who once played for Barcelona and Arsenal, was set to be named as the new coach of French Ligue 1 club Lyon on a two-year contract, reports claimed on Friday. RMC Sport said that the 45-year-old will replace Bruno Genesio for next season after being hand-picked by compatriot Juninho, a former Lyon star who will be the club’s new sporting director. Sylvinho has been working as right-hand man to Brazil coach Tite and had been preparing a team for the 2020 Olympics in Japan. However, he announced he was standing down from that job earlier Friday.
