OGC Nice is one of the “good” surprises of this season in Ligue 1. The Alpes-Maritimes club is fourth in the championship with 50 points, three points from second place. But above all, the Aiglons are the best defense in the championship. Only 23 goals conceded in 29 games since the start of the season. Asked by BFM Nice Côte d’Azur, Dante, captain of the Nice wishes to salute the « remarkable » work of his coach Christophe Galtier.
« He is a great gentleman, it must be said. He showed it! What he did in Saint-Etienne, then in Lille and now with us, it’s remarkable, claims the former defender of Bayern Munich (2012-2015). He is someone who has a human management. He’s in control of his game model. He knows why it’s working, why it’s not working in a split second. He’s someone you’ll have the pleasure of working with for three, four, five years. You can live with it for a long time. He has many qualities to lead a medium and long term project. We are 100% sure (that he is the man we needed in Nice, editor’s note). We needed someone like that, with his experience, his high standards and his rigour.“Arrived on July 1 in Nice, Christophe Galtier is under contract with the INEOS team until June 2024.
