Christophe Galtier went through all the states. At the end of the season, the technician tricolor aged 54 was able to let his joy burst after obtaining the title of champion of France with the LOSC. A title that he savored with his troops and supporters the next day. Earlier this month, the former coach of ASSE announced, not without emotion, his decision to leave the Mastiffs.
” I took my decision. I informed my president, Olivier Létang, after listening to him a lot this morning, that I was going to leave LOSC. Or that I was quitting with LOSC, I’m not sure which term to use. I am quite simply convinced that I have done my time here. I don’t want to fall into a routine, into something classic, as I knew him at one point in Saint-Étienne ”.
A three-year contract
He then confessed that his choice would be quickly, he who was courted by Naples, OL, where he has good relations with Jean-Michel Aulas without counting the means made available to him, or even Nice, where the project is ambitious and where he could be near his loved ones. Finally, without too much surprise, Christophe Galtier decided to join the Aiglons.
The INEOS group announced it via an official press release sent to journalists. Galtier signed a three-year contract with his new team, which paid Lille around 5 million euros for the Mastiffs to agree to release their coach. “I am deeply delighted that we were able to appoint Christophe Galtier as head coach of OGC Nice. He demonstrated his ability to win by winning Ligue 1 in the last game of the season with Lille. It takes guts for that and we at INEOS consider it to be an essential quality ”, explained the boss of the group Jim Ratcliffe.
