Melvin Bard started in League 1 on December 6, 2019 in Nîmes. This season, he has already made two entries against Dijon and Montpellier but was also selected for the first time in the French team. Melvin Bard was particularly sought after by the Bayern Munich who wanted to play it in reserve.
It gives me great pleasure to continue, said Bard on the OL website. I had some requests from other clubs this summer, my choice and that of my relatives has always been that of OL.
