    Can he play up front in a pressing system?

    I actually thought we would wait until the end of the season.

    He worked with Puel at Nice and seems to have made a lot of money from players sales. Nice are a relatively small club, who've been mid-table in Ligue 1 for a few years. They've changed managers a few times under Fournier.

    Some interesting player sales there including Nampalys Mendy, Neal Maupay, Jean Michaël Seri, Maxime Le Marchand, Saïd Benrahma, Alassane Plea,Jordan Amavi, Dalbert. The current Nice squad cost very little in transfer fees. It includes players like Balotelli and Wesley Sneijder brought in on free transfers as well as goalkeeper Mouez Hassen who was here on loan under Puel.

    For a club in the business of selling players, he looks like a good choice. He could help ensure our hold on the net spend trophy for years to come.

    @GFFN: Breaking | OGC Nice President Jean-Pierre Rivère & Sporting Director Julien Fournier have informed employees that they will leave the club as soon as replacements are found for them. Huge loss - two of the smartest men in French football.

    suspicious:
    Just read of Rivere (sorry can't add the accent):

    Jean-Pierre Rivère is a French businessman and chairman of football club OGC Nice.[1] Born in Condom, Gers in 1957, he founded Nice Iselection, a realty software firm that was eventually acquired by Nexity. In 2011 he assumed the chairman's role.
    So, we're linked with a bloke from Condom.
