Zapping But! Football Club OM: top 10 most capped players in history
If he finally chose to join OM, William Saliba was also in the sights of OGC Nice where he was coming out of a conclusive five-month loan. As Aiglons football director Julien Fournier confirmed, the Gym did try a new agreement with Arsenal to keep the former Stéphanois. However, Nice was not ready for all the follies …
In Nice-Matin, Julien Fournier returned frankly to the episode: « William Saliba escaped us. But in hindsight, it’s a bad thing for a good. Because we could not have done other files if we had done so ”.
The failed Saliba detonator of the big Nice Mercato
Beaten on Saliba, Nice then chained the big blows in front (Stengs, Kluivert, Delort) and in the middle (Rosario, Lemina) to compensate. With the secret hope of finally stabilizing the Ineos club at the top of the ranking: “I give everything for the Gym but what annoys me in this club is this ability to relax. I have horrible memories of our third place finish and everything that followed. We thought we were a great club, a great team. The same after fourth place with Claude Puel. There, I can feel this outbreak of fire, even though we have only had a few good results ”.
Fournier does not regret Saliba
If he had erected the new loan of William Saliba as a priority, Julien Fournier, the director of football of OGC Nice, does not finally complain of having seen the former defender of the Greens slip away to OM. Without that, there wouldn’t have been a big Mercato with Inéos sauce.
