Former French champions could not defend their title and did not go far in the Champions League. After an assessment of these performances, the club released a statement.
"Lille would like to sincerely thank Jocelyn Gourvennec for his work, commitment and professionalism throughout the 2021-2022 season," the club wrote in a statement posted on its website.
