Former BVB coach Lucien Favre is about to return to the French first division soccer team OGC Nice.

The club from the Cote d’Azur invited to a press conference scheduled at short notice for Monday afternoon (4:00 p.m.). According to information from the “AFP” news agency, Favre, who had already coached Nice from 2016 to 2018, will be presented as Christophe Galtier’s successor.

At the beginning of June, Favre had also negotiated with Borussia Mönchengladbach about a return to the Lower Rhine, but the Swiss backed down.

Favre “no longer wants to work in Germany,” said Gladbach’s sports director Roland Virkus, who introduced Daniel Farke as the new coach a few days later.

Favre has been without a club since his release from Borussia Dortmund in December 2020. The previous Nice coach Galtier has been traded as a hot candidate for champions Paris St. Germain for weeks, where a replacement for Mauricio Pochettino is being sought.

Favre had led Nice to third place in the 2016/17 season, after eighth place a year later, both sides parted ways.
