While OGC Nice has just chained four consecutive defeats, Patrick Vieira could pay the price for this bad patch for the Aiglons.
Patrick Vieira is a suspended coach. Consequence of the bad results recorded by the‘OGC Nice this autumn. Already eliminated in the Europa League, barring an improbable success by more than four goals against Bayer Leverkusen, the Riviera club is also in the hard in the league, where the Aiglons point to an inglorious 11th place after the slap received at the Allianz Riviera facing Dijon, the red lantern of the championship.
Nice are now four defeats in a row, including three at home, since their success brought back from Angers a month ago and the situation is necessarily becoming problematic for Patrick Vieira. Under pressure, the former midfielder was also particularly nervous after the new setback experienced against Dijon. Especially when some spoke of a lack of support from his group. “You doubt it? If you ask me the question, you doubt it. Your job is also to educate yourself, go see the players, ask them the question, he said, visibly annoyed. Do you have tickets to the club? Do you have a lot of contacts at the club? After that, if you have a certainty, or if someone tells you that they doubt the coach, then yes, you can come and ask me the question. “
But according to L’Equipe, doubts are shared within the staff of the Nice club. Patrick Vieira would be in the hot seat and his future would be at the heart of discussions between the leaders. As much as the results, the level of play displayed by the OGCN worries and the former world champion, at the end of his contract next June, now appears threatened. If the management continues for the time being to favor the stability card, the Riviera coach has every interest in seeing his troops straighten the bar, Thursday, against Bayer and especially Sunday at Reims. Otherwise, at the risk of taking the door.
