Nice: Todibo’s strong words on the departure of Galtier

During an interview with the daily Nice-Matin, the central defender of OGC Nice Jean-Clair Todibo returned to the departure of Christophe Galtier to Paris Saint-Germain. The rear is grateful, but does not frankly regret the departure of his former coach.

Todibo was a manager of Nice de Galtier, but…

After a decent season on one level but marked by internal sporting tensions and in particular a falling out with sports director Julien Fournier, coach Christophe Galtier did not hesitate to leave OGC Nice this summer to ensure the succession of Mauricio Pochettino on the bench for Paris Saint-Germain.

A rather brutal separation, which will take place after several weeks of negotiations and without real farewells.

Galtier, Todibo’s review

And obviously, the departure of the 55-year-old technician did not only make people unhappy. Asked by the Nice-Matin newspaper, Aiglons central defender Jean-Clair Todibo was grateful for the work done by Galtier, but he does not frankly regret the end of their collaboration. With a certain bitterness. It’s part of football. He left for PSG, so much the better for him. I think it’s a very good thing and we wish him the bestan insured former Barcelona.

Todibo didn’t seem closer to his coach than that. It was not the same relationship as with Julien Fournier. There was no problem between us, we had a professional relationship. But it was more than football with Julien. (…) We all learned about it (Galtier’s departure, editor’s note) via the media during our holidays. Me, I would have come to see everyone to say goodbye before I left. Everyone has their own methodology, we may see things differently. But that’s not a criticismadded the 22-year-old.

Satisfactory, but…

As you will have understood, the young full-back – considered a taulier last season with 39 starts in all competitions – overcame this separation rather well. Even if Todibo remains admiring in front of the results brought by Galtier during his year at the head of the Gym. He still leaves on a good note with the qualification for the European Cup. If there is a break with some players? I will not talk about the place of others. But we still have to admit that he did a good job, we finished 5th and the roadblocker of C4underlined the native of Cayenne.

Before finishing. He left, it seemed good to him to do it like that, you have to accept it. And it doesn’t bother anyone. We were all very happy with the arrival of Lucien Favre. No one paid more attention than when the Galtier coach left. Strong and honest proposals that demonstrated that Todibo has already turned the page.

Do you understand Todibo’s reaction to Galtier’s departure from PSG? Do you keep a positive opinion on the passage of “Galette” on the Niois bench? Feel free to react and beat in the area add a comment
