During an interview with the daily Nice-Matin, the central defender of OGC Nice Jean-Clair Todibo returned to the departure of Christophe Galtier to Paris Saint-Germain. The back is grateful, but does not frankly regret the departure of his former coach.
Todibo was a manager of Nice de Galtier, but…
After a decent season on a sporting level but marked by internal tensions and in particular a falling out with sporting director Julien Fournier, coach Christophe Galtier did not hesitate to leave OGC Nice this summer to ensure the succession of Mauricio Pochettino on the Paris Saint-Germain bench.
A rather brutal separation, which will be achieved after several weeks of negotiations and without real farewells.
Galtier, Todibo’s review
And obviously, the departure of the 55-year-old technician did not only make people unhappy. Interviewed by the Nice-Matin newspaper, Aiglons central defender Jean-Clair Todibo was grateful for the work carried out by Galtier, but he does not frankly regret the end of their collaboration. With a certain bitterness. It’s part of football. He left for PSG, so much the better for him. I think it’s a very good thing and we wish him the bestassured the former Barcelonan.
Todibo didn’t seem closer to his coach than that. It wasn’t the same relationship as with Julien Fournier. There was no problem between us, we had a professional relationship. But it was more than football with Julien. (…) We all learned about it (Galtier’s departure, editor’s note) via the media during our holidays. Me, I would have come to see everyone to say goodbye before I left. Everyone has their own methodology, so maybe we see things differently. But that’s not a criticismadded the 22-year-old.
As you will have understood, the young full-back – considered a taulier last season with 39 starts in all competitions – overcame this separation rather well. Even if Todibo remains admiring in front of the results brought by Galtier during his year at the head of the Gym. He leaves all the same on a good note with the qualification in the European Cup. If there was a break with some players? I will not speak for others. But we still have to admit that he did a good job, we finished 5th and roadblocker of C4to emphasize the native of Cayenne.
Before finishing. He left, it seemed good to him to do it like that, you have to accept it. And it doesn’t bother anyone. We were all very happy with the arrival of Lucien Favre. Nobody paid more attention than to the departure of coach Galtier. Strong and honest words that show that Todibo has already turned the page.
