Fifth in the 2021-2022 season, OGC Nice come out of an extremely disappointing campaign with a sad ninth place. Despite the means invested to keep the team at the top of the championship, Dante’s teammates finished 15 points from the podium and behind a team like Clermont, which has the penultimate budget of Ligue 1.

The Brazilian had also pushed a big rant at the end of the season: “I remember when coach Favre arrived:In two or three years, we will be constantly in the Champions League. But it’s not like thathad decided the former defender of Bayern. The French championship is very difficult. You have to respect it, though. And then you’re going to lose 10 players and there are 10 new players coming. It’s very difficult. The teams that are there, in the semi-finals of major competitions, have been playing together for 3 or 4 years. We have just changed 10 players and we will evolve easily? It’s not that. There is a lack of clarity. I’m sorry.

Four recorded departures, including those of Pépé and Delort

At the end of this complicated season, the leaders will have to make strong decisions and it started in the direction of the departures. This Friday, OGC Nice announced that the two loaned players, Joe Bryan and especially Nicolas Pépé, would not be retained. Ross Barkley, meanwhile, who is coming to the end of his contract, will not be extended and Andy Delort will definitely commit to FC Nantes since his option to buy was exercised after the Canaries stayed in the 38th. and last day of Ligue 1.

As a reminder, the leaders of the Aiglons have decided to separate from Didier Digard and are currently in negotiations with Régis Le Bris, stationed in Lorient and author of a remarkable season.
