Speaking in a press conference on Monday, 21-year-old French central defender Jean Clair Todibo confirmed his desire to join OGC Nice permanently from Barcelona.
“I don’t know if it is sorted (for next season), but it is an ambition of mine. So I strongly hope it happens. My individual performances will determine if I stay here or not. Nothing is done.”
Without lying to you, I am not strongly interested in what’s going on. I watch from time to time matches when my French colleagues play like Ousmane Dembélé, Clément Lenglet or Samuel Umtiti. I watch just because I consider them to be friends. But aside from that I am not necessarily following them. I am focused on OGC Nice, that is most important for me. What good does it do to dream of the Barcelona defence when at the weekend I play vs Rennes or Nîmes. The most important thing is to focus on those matches. They are matches that will bring points for Nice. Today I am a Nice player, I am not a Barcelona player.
On Barcelona achieving a Remontada 2.0 vs PSG:
Honestly that doesn’t interest me at all. I hope for them that they will do a Remontada. They either do it, or they don’t. That is not my problem if you know what I mean.
