“There was a big break with the locker room”
“Honestly, I think it’s a good thing that he’s leaving, he says this Wednesday evening at the microphone of RMC. For having had two or three echoes with players who are still in the Nice locker room, there had a big break with the locker room. There were a lot of problems”.
“I think this deal is going to be a win-win, he then considers about the arrival of his former coach in Paris, also referring to Favre’s return to Nice. Galtier will be happy. The Nice locker room, with the return of Favre, I think he will be a winner too. And in the eyes of the fans especially, it’s the right pick”.
“The coach has alienated the locker room to make himself heard better by management”
“The echoes that I had was that the problems between the management of Nice and the coach had become so important that it was rubbing off on the locker room, adds Cardinale. The coach put the locker room on his back to better to be heard by the management, in view of the mercatos which were arriving. The echoes that I had was that he was involved in politics”.
Cardinale left theOGC Nice last summer free of any contract, without having been able to find a club since. As a reminder, the French champion coach with LOSC in 2021 will resume PSG training this Monday, while it has still not been formalized. “Gouiri is a player who put forward the fact that he wanted to play attacking, he was not listened to, concludes Cardinale about his young teammate. So it was a bit of a debate with the coach. And that’s it , a break, a break to the left, a break behind…”. The PSG locker room is warned.
