Ligue 1’s apparent status as a feeder league isn’t bad – ESPN FC

Ligue 1’s apparent status as a feeder league isn’t bad – ESPN FC.

Okay, it isn’t a bad thing financially and confirms the status of French academies as excellent creators of young talent but is that good enough?

After all that progress is Lyon just happy to let some their major driving force, Alexandre Lacazette, go and basically end up six and done in the Champions League? The best clubs find a line between creating talent and being successful on the pitch as well. It may not be embarrassing that Ligue 1 sees such a talent exodus every summer but it’s not something to tout with great pride either. I’d like to see more French teams than just PSG challenging in Europe.
