90PLUS | OGC Nice: rumors about Pochettino – Favre before the end?


News | Mauricio Pochettino is apparently considered a candidate for the post of coach at OGC Nice. After a weak start to the season, Lucien Favre is likely to be out again after less than three months in office.

Will Mauricio Pochettino be Favre’s successor at OGC Nice?

Like the one for RMC Sport active reporter Julien Laurens via Twitter reported, the OGC Nice is interested in Mauricio Pochettino (50). A meeting between the 50-year-old and the manager of the French club is scheduled for Tuesday. The coach, who worked at Paris Saint-Germain until the end of last season, could succeed the criticized Lucien Favre (64).

The current start of the season for the club was very mixed with eight points from eight games. After two wins, two draws and four defeats, Nice is currently in 13th place in the table Ligue 1 again. In qualifying for the UEFA Europa Conference League, the club was able to prevail against Maccabi Tel Aviv (0:1, 2:0 aet), but remained without a win in the group stage on the first two matchdays when they lost from 1. FC Köln and Partizan each separated with 1:1.

This previous yield could be fatal for Favre, who has only been in office since the beginning of the season. With Pochettino, an immediately available successor would be ready. The fact that the 50-year-old received a handsome salary from PSG does not seem to be an obstacle for Nice. According to the report, the club can meet the Argentine’s financial demands.
