For a long time, Borussia Mönchengladbach believed they were on the right track to bringing Lucien Favre back to their own coaching bench. But the Swiss jumped out at short notice and hired on to another former club: OGC Nice.
A decision he may already regret. Because after eight games, Nice is only in the disappointing 13th place in Ligue 1 with eight points. Now Favre’s chair is already shaking. And Nice looks to the top shelf in search of a successor.
Like the French FT-affiliate site Foot Mercato reported, a meeting between the management of the OGC Nice and Mauricio Pochettino will take place today, Tuesday. Even the high salary of the former Tottenham Hotspur and Paris St. Germain coach shouldn’t be a hurdle. If an agreement is reached, Favre’s days in Nice would be numbered again.
