Nice: President Rivère’s transfer window


President of Nice, Jean-Pierre Rivère gave an initial assessment of the summer recruitment of the Riviera club, at a press conference.

With the arrivals of Kasper Schmeichel and Aaron Ramsey, who followed the arrivals of Rares Ilie, Mattia Viti and Alexis Beka Beka, the recruitment of Nice experienced a real boost. As a trip to Toulouse looms on Sunday, as part of the 1st day of Ligue 1, Jean-Pierre Rivère took advantage of his presence in front of the media on Friday to draw up an initial assessment of the Aiglons transfer window. Alongside the Swiss coach Lucien Favre and the newcomers, the president of Le Gym hailed “good balance” Between “this mixture of experience and youth.”

“We have several options, we will see”

For the rest of the shopping, after having put an end to the Edinson Cavani rumor, the Nice boss warns: “Francis Amuzu? He’s on the list. Marcus Thuram? Him too. These are shrinking rosters but there are still a few competing players. Alassane (Plea), whom we know well, was not part of the list, we were able to talk about it like that. We have several options, we will see. At some point, we will make choices, the players will make choices too. Now we know what we are missing. We strive daily to make sure. A lot of people were worried about our transfer window. He still accelerated. The time to set up, to study the project well, to know the philosophy of play that the coach wanted. Either we rushed to please popular pressure, or we took our time. I think it was the right path. We tried to make the right choices and frankly, we are delighted with the recruits we have so far. It’s up to the coach to put all this to music and extract the quintessence.”
