French midfielder Amandine Henry announced Thursday, June 1, her "departure" from Olympique Lyonnais. "After fifteen years spent at this incredible club, it is with great emotion that I announce my departure from OL today", explained on Instagram the 33-year-old player, at the end of the contract in June, and on "sick leave" for several weeks.
In April, she explained, already on her social networks, to be in conflict with her club, after asking OL to "release" her before the end of her contract to join a "new project". Amandine Henry, injured in the left knee since March, would be interested in the club of Angel City, California, according to several media.
"It was an honor for me to have been able to play under these colors and to have been part of this incredible family that is Olympique Lyonnais," said the midfielder on Thursday. She also had "a special thought for President Aulas", thanking him "from the bottom of my heart for his support and his commitment to the development of women's football and OL".
Excluded by Corinne Deacon from the France team for many months, Amandine Henry has a small chance of returning for the 2023 World Cup this summer, with the arrival of Hervé Renard.
