On the eve of the trip from Lille to Metz, Christophe Galtier reacted to rumors indicating an interest from Nice to recruit him. The Lille coach ensures that there is no contact.
After Lyon, it is Nice which would like to afford the services of Christophe Galtier, L’Equipe said this week. The LOSC coach responded to the rumor at a press conference, assuring that he had no contact with OGC Nice. “A club that would like to ask me? Who did not ask me, let things be clear,” he said.
Lille, leader of the championship with three points ahead of Paris-Saint-Germain, is only seven games away from a potential title of champion of France. But the very close battle at the top of the standings with Paris, Monaco and Lyon makes the end of the championship very tense.
“Methods of destabilization”
After denying any contact with Jean-Michel Aulas or Juninho a week ago, Christophe Galtier ensures that there is nothing with Nice either, and is annoyed by these rumors. “These methods, these announcement effects when neither of the two clubs mentioned has requested me, show that we are going back a few years, with methods of destabilization,” said the Lille coach.
If the future of Christophe Galtier is not yet decided, it may not be before the end of the championship. “Regarding my future, I am very calm, said the coach of LOSC. I am obsessed with the last seven games that come up because it is an incredible opportunity. I do not want to waste energy on what I am doing. Lily.” We will probably have to wait for the outcome of this season to know Galtier’s team next season.
