Montpellier Chairman Laurent Nicollin: “If we had finished last, I would’ve shut my mouth.”

Speaking to Le Figaro, Montpellier Chairman Laurent Nicollin was asked about Toulouse and Amiens’ intentions to legally contest their automatic relegation to Ligue 2 after the LFP decided to terminate the 2019/20 season and certify the final standings on a points per games played ratio.

“If there are legal challenges in the weeks to come, we risk not being paid the new round of TV rights money, and that could unleash a new crisis. You are going to say to me: “if you were Toulouse or Amiens, you would have done that too.” I don’t know, in fact, I do know. If we finish last, with a certain decency, I would have shut my mouth. I think like that today, with old age maybe I am becoming a big idiot.”
