What’s next after this ad

The end of the love story between OGC Nice and Lucien Favre is no longer in doubt. Beaten at home by Angers just before the international break and thirteenth in the Ligue 1 standings, the Aiglons continue to disappoint. A great architect of the return of the Swiss coach to the Côte d’Azur, President Jean-Pierre Rivère has lost his bet.

For his part, the Swiss technician does not cling to his position. Quite the contrary. Favre, who has returned to the country, is in a hurry to give up his chair. The Swiss could also leave with a nice check for €3 million. Le Gym has in any case already prepared its succession since we revealed to you exclusively that the owners of the club have activated the track leading to Mauricio Pochettino.

A big problem with Schmeichel

Free since his dismissal from Paris Saint-Germain, the Argentinian would also be very interested in the idea of ​​taking on the dreams of this team. Favre doesn’t want to hear about it anymore. And for good reason. RMC Sports reveals the various points that led Switzerland to the start. As has been mentioned on several occasions, there was this summer transfer window during which Favre decided nothing and had several recruits imposed on him. Coming for a project, the latter quickly understood that the reality was very different.

Then, his authority in the locker room was severely challenged. The current no longer seemed to pass with the younger generation, but it was especially with Kasper Schmeichel that there was a big problem. Arrived overweight, the Danish doorman broke several rules of the group’s life. Finally, his entourage, who is in direct contact with the boss Sir Jim Ratcliffe, did not hesitate to call the English billionaire for Schmeichel to be established. So many elements put together that ended up putting an end to Favre’s dreams of a triumphant comeback.
