It’s a bit of a backlash for the leaders of OGC Nice. Since the arrival of INEOS, the Gym project has struggled to take off. This summer, the Aiglons were not unhappy to see Christophe Galtier pack up and go to Paris Saint-Germain. Having become persona non grata because of his repeated criticism, especially on the transfer window, the new Parisian coach was no longer desired and Paris even paid to recruit him.
The good deal, we thought on the side of the Nice board. Especially since President Jean-Pierre Rivère had already planned his move by bringing Lucien Favre back. The Swiss knows the house of Nice very well, a place he particularly likes. But even with his favorite coach, Rivère has problems. Thirteenth in the Ligue 1 standings after 8 days, the OGCN is disappointing (2 wins, 2 draws, 4 losses). Still.
3 M€ to transfer Favre
The home defeat against Angers (0-1) could also have consequences. According nice morning, club leaders are wondering about Favre’s ability to turn the situation around. Today, his future at the Allianz Riviera is clearly in question. For his part, the Swiss, who returned to the country during the international break, would not necessarily be against a departure.
Like Galtier, Favre did not appreciate his club’s transfer window very much. A recruitment campaign marked by the arrival of several elements which he did not want and which he considers not to be at the level. nice morning also confirms that the transplant has still not taken between the coach and his flock. Will Favre pack his bags before the resumption? His dismissal would cost the Aiglons €3m.
