Galtier responds to the Lyon rumor

While many rumors reported tensions between Christophe Galtier and his management and his departure was already being considered, the coach of the eaglets insisted on putting the dots on the i’s at a press conference. He took the opportunity to recall his commitment and cut short the rumors that sent him to OL next season.

A few days ago, theTeam revealed that after Nice’s last poor performance in the league and its Coupe de France final lost last Saturday against Nantes (0-1), Christophe Galtier was wondering about the direction the club was taking. In addition, we learned that strong tensions were present between the native of Marseille and Julien Fournier, the sports director of Nice. Enough to call into question the commitment of the former Stéphane coach with the Riviera club. Quite quickly, many rumors reported a flashback with OL who had tried to lure him to their bench before Bosz’s arrival.

Galtier confirms disagreements with Fournier but sees himself in Nice next year!

Present at a press conference yesterday before the reception this Wednesday of Saint-Étienne (7 p.m.), the former defender answered without ambiguity the questions concerning his future and the information which leaked in the press. If the former Marseille player recognizes tensions with Julien Fournier, he made it clear that he did not see himself elsewhere next season, whether in Lyon or another club:

“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 be the coach of OGC Nice next season? Why ? Because there were disagreements, clashes? We are not in the world of care bears. Top-level football demands incredible standards to try to get results. And wham, we can’t get on the last step of one of the two trophies on which we were committed. But we made it to the final. There is everything that is said between Julien, the director of football, and me, the coach. But it is the lot of all clubs and all seasons. » Christophe Galtier – Source: Press conference (10/05/2022)
