In order to replace Lucien Favre, OGC Nice has been in talks for several days with coach Mauricio Pochettino, free since the end of his adventure with Paris Saint-Germain. Problem, the Gym does not manage to get along with the Argentinian technician.
Mauricio Pochettino, a complex file for Nice.
After a rat start to the season with only 8 points in 8 days of Ligue 1, OGC Nice, currently 13th in the standings, has made the decision to part ways with coach Lucien Favre. A very quick choice on the part of the leaders of Niois, who however want to replace him with a renowned coach.
Thus, very quickly, a man left to eventually take over from the Swiss technician: Mauricio Pochettino.
Pochettino, a coin!
A very ambitious track for the Aiglons. Because even if the Argentinian has the advantage of being free since the end of his collaboration with Paris Saint-Germain, his pedigree can certainly allow him to target a more upscale team on the European level. But with an ambitious project, the INEOS group seems to want to give itself the means to achieve a big blow with Pochettino.
Problem, according to information from radio RMC, the management of the OGCN cannot reach an agreement with the ex-manager of Tottenham. This track skate Mrs. and the Gym find themselves in a completely blocked situation. Why ? Because to disembark Favre, Nice absolutely wants to have got their hands on his replacement. And without an agreement with Pochettino, the days pass with a necessarily particular status quo internally.
Favre as if nothing had happened…
For his part, Favre obviously has no intention of facilitating his departure. Aware of the current situation, the former Borussia Dortmund coach led the Aiglons’ training as normal on Wednesday. In front of the players and the staff, Favre would have even assured that he was going to stay. According to Nice, it is above all a strategy to leave with a good compensation. In the meantime, INEOS Sports director Dave Brailsford is due to meet the native of Saint-Barthlemy this Thursday. A decisive meeting for the future of the Azuren club?
