Does Lyon's Leaked 23-24 Home Kit Pay Homage to Famous Chef Paul Bocuse?
Lyon's new 23-24 home kit has been leaked this month. Now we have been made aware that it likely not only pays homage to the 2002-2004 kit but also to the famous chef Paul Bocuse.
Lyon 23-24 Home Kit Features Collar Like Chef Jacket of Paul Bocuse
The collar of the Olympique Lyon 2023-2024 home kit is designed like the collar of the chef jacket worn by Bocuse, who was a key figure in the creation of French nouvelle cuisine. He earned a coveted third Michelin star in 1965 and was named Chef of the Century by the prominent Gault Millau restaurant guide in 1987.
Indeed, the Parc OL stadium has also been undergoing a makeover recently to pay homage to Paul Bocuse. The portrait of Paul Bocuse has appeared on the esplanade of the stadium, and on April 23, the stadium will pay tribute to the famous chef during the home game against Marseille. The supporters of the club have been preparing for this tribute for months, and the pre-game will feature several animations in honor of Bocuse.
The two secrets of success: quality and creativity
Bocuse, who passed away five years ago, was a fan of the Lyon club and has been officially registered in the club's heritage. His image has been depicted on one of the walls of the Parc OL wearing the OL jersey from the 1955-1956 season, along with a quote from the chef: "The two secrets of success: quality and creativity".
