Lucien Favre will finally continue at OGC Nice

The Swiss, a time announced on the start, will remain on the bench of the Aiglons, at least “in the short term”.

Rebound at OGC Nice. While his departure seemed to become clearer day by dayLucien Favre should finally remain the coach of the Aiglons, at least "short term“, according to the latest indiscretions revealed by RMC Sports. "This maintenance [...] was agreed following a meeting between the Swiss and Ineos sporting director Dave Brailsford“, specify our colleagues.

Mauricio Pochettino would not have found an agreement with the Aiglons

For several days, the name of Mauricio Pochettino, thanked by Paris Saint-Germain in the off-season, was insistently cited to take over from Lucien Favre. However, the Argentinian technician would not have found an agreement with the Nice leaders. Maintaining the 64-year-old coach thus appears to be a default choice. It must be said that the Aiglons' start to the season is not at all up to par with their European ambitions. After eight days of Ligue 1, the club from the Côte d'Azur points to a sad 13e place in the standings just two small units from the red zone; and this despite the arrival of several big players during the summer transfer market. Next weekend, OGC Nice will take to the pitch at Paris SG (Saturday, 9 p.m.). A difficult confrontation to revive.
