Nice: Galtier insirable, his successor is getting closer

At odds with his leaders, and focused on Paris Saint-Germain, Christophe Galtier finds himself pushed out by OGC Nice. Le Gym is already preparing its succession and is moving towards an agreement with Lucien Favre, who has already worked for the Azuren club.

Lucien Favre has agreed to return to Nice.

Between OGC Nice and Christophe Galtier, separation seems inevitable. Especially since the recent media release of sports director Julien Fournier (see here).

Last week, the manager took advantage of an interview with L’Equipe to criticize the work of his coach, whose training only finished in 5th place in Ligue 1 this season.

in advance with Favre

No doubt a way of pushing Galtier towards the exit. Anyway, the technician, cold with his superior, also wants to put an end to their collaboration. He who only hopes for a concrete proposal from Paris Saint-Germain.

Despite the keen interest of football adviser Luis Campos, the Parisian offer has not (yet) arrived. But without waiting, Nice approached its former coach Lucien Favre (2016-2018), also interested in a new collaboration. Indeed, the Foot Mercato media evokes a positive evolution of the discussions between President Jean-Pierre Rivière and the Swiss.

Galtier by the small door

There were only details to be settled to finalize the agreement with Favre, free since his departure from Borussia Dortmund in December 2020, and who had left good memories with the Aiglons. His team had finished the 2016-2017 financial year as 3rd in Ligue 1, all with an attractive game. Either all that Galtier is not offered for his first and likely last season in Nice.

In your opinion, would Lucien Favre be a good choice for Nice? Feel free to react and beat in the area add a comment
