Garde to hold Lyon deal talks
A buoyant Remi Garde is to meet with Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas and discuss his future at the club.
The former France international was handed the reins at Stade Gerland last summer and was charged with the task of restoring lost pride.
His first managerial post has seen him do just that, with Lyon tasting Coupe de France glory on Saturday, and that success ended the club's four-year wait for major silverware.
Garde's current contract with Lyon will expire at the end of the current campaign, with the club initially reluctant to tie him down long-term, but fresh terms are set to be discussed.
The 46-year-old is refusing to speculate on what the outcome of those talks might be, but appreciates that his standing in coaching circles has improved over recent weeks.
Ahead of a Ligue 1 meeting with Valenciennes, Garde told L'Equipe: "Before the match, I don't want him (Aulas) to read my thoughts in the newspaper. Otherwise, it is no hardship to meet with him.
"I have considered everything, Saturday's win as well. Everybody is proud of the club, myself more so than anyone.
"Is my stock high now? It's not for me to judge."
