Ramsey on Schmeichel: ‘He’s been a fantastic goalkeeper for years’
“I played with Kasper a long time ago, we both started pro at Cardiff. We’ve played a lot of games and changed since then. He’s been a fantastic goalkeeper for years.

Aaron Ramsey on this season with the World Cup: “I’m focused on Nice”

Aaron Ramsey: ‘The last two years have been great experiences’
Aaron Ramsey: “The last two years have been very good experiences. It’s been good to go somewhere else, to get out of my comfort zone after years at Arsenal. It’s a good opportunity here and I’m going to do everything to achieve the team’s goals.
Favre: “I saw his last match against Ukraine, he played in the double pivot and with his experience he can adapt. From what we saw, he sent football. He just plays at good time, with good passes. He’s a mature player, always optimistic. He talks a lot with the rest of the team. And I hope for him that he won’t have all these injuries, but I think that it’s going to be fine.”

Beka-Beka on Ramsey’s arrival: ‘I’m proud to be part of this squad’

Beka-Beka on his experience at Lokomotiv: “Russia is one of my best experiences”
“Russia is one of my most beautiful experiences. I learned a lot there, also because I was alone there without my family. I needed a life experience, to grow , to be more mature. And I’m proud to come back here having avoided.”
Favre: “The objective is that in two years we will have to be in the top 3 all the time”
Favre: “The players who arrived are 19, 20 and 21, so the future is there. The objective is that in two years we should always be in the top 3 or even more. They are young players who have the talent, the requirement and the will to progress.”
Alexis Beka-Beka on his arrival this year at OGC Nice: “Last year I didn’t have the chance to chat with the coach”
“I already had contact with OGC Nice last season. This time I’m lucky that it goes all the way. Last year I didn’t have the chance to talk to the coach, so I didn’t know if I was going into his plans. This season I was more confident and it was done in the right direction. We got to know each other, we talked about football, but nothing particular in itself. He told me that he had to use me in midfield. I told him that I preferred to play number 6.”
Mattia Viti in the footsteps of Balotelli
“Italian players who play outside Italy there are a few, but the fact that the last one to go through OGC Nice was Balotelli and that he left a good memory gave me a good memory.”

Jean-Pierre Rivère: “I confirm that it came from Lucien, who told me he was a very good player.”
Rare Ilie on his arrival in Nice: “Since I arrived here, I have read the history of the club”

“It’s part of the life of a team, of the life of a club. There are ups and downs. As soon as there is no result, even in friendly matches where we make special preparations, the goal is to win, demonstrated the MHSC technician When you don’t win, there is danger for the coach because at club level we are not satisfied and at fan level we are not is not satisfied etc. This is part of the life of a club. As soon as we regain a little confidence by winning a match, there will be a state of mind in the team. It will be different. We must work, we must move forward. There are those who speak and those who move forward. I would prefer to move forward.”
And the Hérault coach clarified that he exchanges regularly with President Nicollin: “Of course it’s reassuring (to feel his support). We often talk with Laurent and the leaders about the decisions to be made and what he is happening. There’s no problem. I’m present and the president is even more present than me on this. He feels and sees that things are working. For the moment, he gives his confidence to the staff and that makes good. We feel that we are supported in the work that we do. It is this work that will pay off and the president sees it well. If we were working badly, he would say so too because it is his character . He speaks with his heart, he says things and tells everyone. We are very happy about that.”
