An embarrassing 9-0 defeat away at Liverpool proved to be his final game in charge.

But according to Foot Mercato, the ex-Fulham gaffer’s horror start to the season at the Vitality Stadium hasn’t put them off.

They have stated that he is a candidate to replace Lucien Favre in the French Riviera, with the 64-year-old under increasing pressure since succeeding Christophe Galtier in the summer.

Nice sit in 13th spot in Ligue 1 after the opening eight matches having won just two games, while losing on four occasions.

That is despite Nice boasting the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Ross Barkley, Nicolas Pepe, Morgan Schneiderlin and Kasper Schmeichel.

It was previously claimed how Mauricio Pochettino was to hold talks with Nice after he was relieved of his duties by Paris Saint-Germain in July.

But Foot Mercato have insisted the ex-Tottenham gaffer is unlikely to accept the job, despite Nice prepared to meet his salary demands.

It is understood that Poch is holding out for a return to the Premier League where he is looking to join a side capable of challenging for trophies.
