The future of Mauricio Pochettino, recently linked to Nice, is uncertain at the moment. According to information from Foot-Mercato Y RMC Sportsthe Argentine coach He moves away from the bench of the French team, which had set him as a priority to succeed Lucien Favre on the bench during the international break.
After a first contact this Tuesday, the negotiations between both parties are increasingly distant and everything indicates that Pochettino will not be the successor of the Swiss coach. Favre, for his part, does not want to leave Nice until he receives a corresponding compensation to the remaining years of his contract, so His dismissal will have to wait, for now.
Nice, meanwhile, do not want to terminate their coach’s contract until they have found a replacement for him. Pochettino was an option that Ineos, owner of the club for three years, liked a lot, but the negotiations have not borne fruit. The English owners are still looking for technicians in the market who can take over from Favre, condemned for his poor results.
Favre would also be upset with the southern club for the performance it had in the transfer market. According to sportsmailthe coach did not agree with the signing of players who had lost their place in their respective Premier League teams, such as Kasper Schmeichel, Ross Barkley or Aaron Ramsey. The relations between the bench and the box, in this way, would not be the most fluid either.
