Just a few weeks ago, Lucien Favre was hotly traded as the new coach of Borussia Mönchengladbach. As is well known, nothing came of a renewed engagement with the foals. Nevertheless, the Swiss coach could face a return to an old club. According to information from ‘L’Équipe’, OGC Nice has chosen Favre to succeed Christophe Galtier, who is likely to move to Paris St. Germain. From 2016 to 2018 (99 games) Favre was already on the sidelines of the Aiglons.
According to the report, concrete talks have already been held about the terms of a possible contract and the composition of his coaching staff. The essentials have been settled so that Favre can ideally be present at Nice’s start of training next Monday.
Already had a month ago FT reported on the contact between Nice and Favre. At that time, however, Gladbach was considered the favorite to sign the tactical fox. Now it seems that Nice will land the clubless coach.
