Lindsey Horan excited about the potential sale of Lyon Feminin to Michelle Kang

USWNT star Lindsey Horan expresses her excitement about the potential sale of Lyon Féminin to Washington Spirit owner Michelle Kang.

Horan believes that Kang’s leadership could usher in an incredible new era for the French club. As part of Kang’s plans, she will establish a dedicated training center for the women’s team and explore the possibility of using a local rugby stadium as their new home venue.

Lyon, despite being eight-time Champions League winners, currently share a training ground with the men’s side and seldom play at the 59,000-capacity Groupama Stadium. Lindsey Horan sees the potential for a new era with the introduction of Michelle Kang into the ownership group, anticipating positive changes for the women’s team.

“Our team isn’t just attached to the men’s team,” she said. “Our team is in itself its own. To see some of these teams around the world now having their own training facilities, having their own stadiums — that’s what they deserve.

Horan praised ‘amazing’ Michelle Kang

“We women work just as hard and we’re professionals just as much as the men. So at least we should have our own training facility. But We should have all access to the things that we need, that I’m pretty sure most men’s clubs get, and to have our own stadium would be incredible as well.”

“Michelle is amazing, I’ve met her many times,” Horan added. “But I think her aspirations and the things that she’s doing in the world are insane. She’s not just saying things to say them, or to hope that it could happen, she’s going and making them happen. What she’ll do with Lyon is going to be absolutely incredible.”

Additionally, Lyon is set to make their UEFA Champions League debut in the 2023/24 season against Slavia Prague. And Lindsey Horan will contribute to the campaign as they aim for their ninth European trophy.
