Football: Mauricio Pochettino back in Ligue 1?

Only a few months after his dismissal from PSG, Mauricio Pochettino could quickly find a bench in Ligue 1 on the side of Nice, where Lucien Favre would already be strongly threatened.

Mauricio Pochettino might not be without a club for very long. Nice, who had a complicated start to the season, would think of the Argentine coach, free since his dismissal from PSG last June, to replace Lucien Favre. Only a few months after his return to the Côte d’Azur, the Swiss technician, who is under contract until 2024, is already threatened at the head of the Aiglons because of the results but also of the performances far from proven. Without forgetting certain differences with its direction.

And if he does not imagine leaving the club and he has the support of certain players, including captain Dante, his future is more than uncertain. Especially since the leaders of Nice, President Jean-Pierre Rivère and sports director at Ineos Dave Brailsford in the lead, have already planned to meet Mauricio Pochettino in the coming hours. The latter, who would be the priority to succeed Lucien Favre, would be interested in the project. His emoluments would not be an obstacle to his arrival, Nice has the necessary means to meet his requirements.

In case of arrival, Mauricio Pochettino will have the heavy burden of launching the Aiglons season which is struggling to take off. Beaten on Sunday by Angers (0-1), Nice, which has not won a single home game this season, is only 13e place in the standings with only two wins (two draws and four losses).

Far from the objectives displayed by the club, while the Niçois must move on the lawn of… PSG after the international break. A meeting which could therefore serve as a reunion for Mauricio Pochettino. But also for Christophe Galtier.
