C.Galtier – why I will not be the trainer of Nice next season?

Will I be the coach of OGC Nice next season? The question does not need to exist now, but I will answer you. Why won’t I coach OGC Nice next season? Why ?

We will take stock at the end of the season. slid the 55-year-old man.

If he refuses to mention a departure today, Galtier is still waiting for answers on the club’s ambitions for next season. They will depend, in part, on qualifying for the European Cup. What happens if we are 4th at the end of the season? We will say that Nice missed its season by finishing 4th and having been in the final of the Coupe de France?, asks Galtier. If successful tomorrow, Nice will overtake Strasbourg and Rennes to move up to 4th place, two points off the podium. Despite the disappointment of the Coupe de France, the OGCN can still afford a good end to the season.
