Fournier clears his bag on Galtier, Puel plays the referee

Zapping But! Football Club Top 10: the top scorers of the decade

Julien Fournier did not mince his words about Christophe Galtier. After a sawmill season, OGC Nice’s football director has questioned his coach’s work. “Are the winter markets too chilly?” It’s an excuse. Sometimes to escape a form of reality. This team, as it stands, could have had better results. With more offensive going, sometimes more courage, he said in The Team. This is his reading of events. This is a shortcut. I think he could have done better too. »

If he does not regret the decision to bring Galtier last summer, Fournier takes the example of Claude Puel to replace him. “Christophe has been extremely successful in Lille. As is the case with some players, it has been less effective in our country. He is expected to perform better next season, especially on the offensive side. you never know a person until you have worked with (…) With Claude Puel, it has never been a long quiet river. But Claude was professional to the nail. I was too. It was otherwise harder with Claude, but he was remarkably professional. With Patrick (Vieira), it wasn’t easy either, but we worked hard. »

Regarding the mercato and next season, the football director of OGC Nice has not closed any doors … even for a possible continuity of Galtier on the Nice bench! “The market? Christophe is on holiday, he needs to cut back and his holiday period needs to be respected. And you don’t have to change three-quarters of the team. There will be no revolution. Who will be most likely to be there again in a year? Maybe both! Or neither! »

To summarize

Julien Fournier, director of football at OGC Nice, took advantage of a lengthy interview with L’Équipe to settle accounts with his coach Christophe Galtier. Claude Puel thinks he was pushed and lets the ref know about it.
