PSG: Todibo recounts the departure of Gatlier, and dreams of a Kalimuendo-Cavani duo in Nice


Jean-Clair Todibo was complimentary to Arnaud Kalimuendo and Edinson Cavani, and returned to the departure of Christophe Galtier

It was under the orders of Christophe Galtier that he lived his first full season in Ligue 1. In an interview with Nice-Matin, central defender Jean-Clair Todibo mentioned the departure of his former coach from OGC Nice , which did not affect him "more than that".

“It's part of football.

He left for PSG, so much the better for him.

I think it's a very good thing and we wish him the best.

There was no problem between us, it was a professional relationship.

But it was not the same relationship as with Julien Fournier.

It was more than football with Julien, ”remembered the Niçois, comparing the new Parisian technician to the former director of football at the Gym, Julien Fournier.

No message from Galtier on his departure

Jean-Clair Todibo also assures that the coach did not, “has (his) knowledge”, not sent a message to the players to announce his departure to Paris which took place during the truce.

"We all learned about it through the media during our holidays," he says.

I would have come to see everyone to say goodbye before I left.

Everyone has their own methodology, we may see things differently.

But that's not a criticism.


In his interview of more than an hour with our colleagues from Nice-Matin, the former Barcelonan also mentioned the transfer window of OGC Nice.

He believes that new recruitments in attack "would not hurt" by the end of the summer, and a Parisian caught his eye.

“Arnaud Kalimuendo, I like it a lot.

Last year, he was one of the strikers I preferred to play against, I like it when it's hot.

There had been a real balance of power, he is a good spirit.

He is very mature for his age, makes good calls, places himself well, he is boring to play,” said the French defender.

He even dreams of seeing the former Lensois associated with Edinson Cavani in the Nice attack.

"Cavani-Kalimuendo, it would be heavy"

“It's the Matador anyway, top scorer in the history of PSG.

It would do him good!

(…) Cavani-Kalimuendo, it would be heavy but the coach will start scratching his head, ”he laughed.

Before announcing possible next recruits, Nice have already welcomed several new players, in addition to the definitive purchase of former Parisian Marcin Bulka.

This summer, Aaron Ramsey, Kasper Schmeichel, Rares Ilie, Mattia Viti and Alexis Beka Beka have all arrived on the Côte d'Azur.
