Mauricio Pochettino unlikely to accept Nice job

According to Foot Mercatoeven though Ligue 1 side OGC Nice have been in contact with former PSG and Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino – he is reportedly unlikely to accept the job as he holds out for a European project in the near future.

Santi Aouna reported that Pochettino and Nice met on Tuesday to discuss the potential job opening.

According to RMC, Lucien Favre is “experiencing his final hours” as OGC Nice manager with his departure from the Côte d’Azur club close to being confirmed. 

RMC report that both parties want to put an end to their collaboration and that the agreement for their separation should be found quickly. Favre has struggled to muster the performances, and most importantly, the results, that made him such an adored figure during his first spell in charge at the club. 

Having replaced Christophe Galtier in the summer, their reunion has never flourished. Favre endured a difficult transfer window and judging by his responses to questions during the unveiling of Gaëtan Laborde and Ross Barkley, he was not actively involved in some of the recruitment that took place. Much of the business also took place late in the window, making for a difficult start to the league campaign.
