While OGC Nice wants to part with Lucien Favre after a bad start to the season, the track leading to Mauricio Pochettino, the former PSG coach, is not moving in the right direction.
OGC Nice is still coached by Lucien Favre. The Swiss coach, in the hot seat following the club’s poor results, ensured the training session well this Wednesday in Nice. He even confirmed to players and staff that he was going to stay.
A facade speech? It may also be a maneuver to make it clear that he will not leave without compensation, according to a source close to the Gym.

Impossible to dismiss Favre before having his replacement
After a start to the season far from expectations, two victories in eight Ligue 1 games and a 13th position in the standings, the Nice leaders do not wish to continue the collaboration with Lucien Favre. But impossible to dismiss the Swiss technician without having his replacement.
Problem, the track leading to Mauricio Pochettino is slipping, while OGC Nice would see the Argentinian return to Ligue 1, a few months after his departure from Paris Saint-Germain.
To move the lines in Nice, a meeting should also be held this Thursday between Lucien Favre and the sports director of Ineos, Dave Brailsford.
