Nice owners Ineos to carry out overhaul at Lausanne

Swiss outlet Blick report today that Lausanne-Sport, the other club owner by Nice’s Jim Ratcliffe as part of Ineos, is set to undergo major changes at the upper management level.

The Romandy side are currently rock bottom of the top flight. Sporting director Souleymane Cissé is expected to be the first to go, with the former midfielder particularly a target of the fans’ ire.

Cissé, who previously held a role at Bordeaux, is expected to stay with Ineos and take on a role particularly around Racing Club Abidjan, the club he himself founded in his native Ivory Coast.

Bob Ratcliffe, the brother of Ineos owner Jim Ratcliffe, will also be relieved of his duties and replaced with someone else from within the organisation.

The final major name to leave is set to be manager Alain Casanova, the former Toulouse coach having arrived in February and failed to keep the team up.
