ROME – Good news for the Juventus in view of the return of the Champions League round of 16 against Lyon, scheduled for early August: Rudi Garcia’s team will not be able to count on Lucas Tousart, author of the goal that gave the victory to the French, in the first leg match on February 26th. Tousart has been owned by Hertha Berlin since January, which has decided not to leave the player to Lyon, as an exception, beyond the loan expiration date, set for June 30th.
Hertha has been taking Tousart since July
“We are delighted that there is now clarity and that we can welcome Lucas as our new Hertha player from July onwards. We had cordial discussions with the managers of Olympique Lyon, whom I would like to thank” He says Michael Preetz, manager of Hertha. From 1 July therefore Tousart will be available to the German team.
