Confirmation by President Jean-Pierre Rivère who explained himself to the microphones of the Team and Nice Matin. “We are not going to change coaches after eight days, it is neither a sporting nor a human solution. Dave (Brailsford) saw him for a long time yesterday (Thursday), Lucien (Favre) left the meeting very happy, he was happy to be supported. The rumors were unfounded, Lucien tells you: I know football and I remain confident for the future. »

No contact for Pochettino promises Rivère

At the same time, Rivère totally denied the rumor leading to an interest in Mauricio Pochettino, while a meeting was even announced. “No one from the club has met, or called, Pochettino or his representatives. It’s disrespectful and weaken our coach in place. We will all work together with Lucien to recover as best we can from the bad start to the season. No ultimatum was given to him. »
