Sent to Hertha Berlin and Rennes for many weeks, Jeff Reine-Adélaïde finally joined OGC Nice in the very last hours of the transfer window, to everyone’s surprise, as part of a loan with option to buy. Asked by the press during his presentation Thursday, the international Espoirs justified his choice to join the Aiglons rather than Germany. “I saw that the two clubs had come to an agreement. But I could not see myself leaving France without having really succeeded in my country ”, he explained.

But “JRA” also created controversy with an interview given to The team in the heart of the transfer window. An interview during which he had displayed his impatience, alienating his management and the Lyon supporters. “I will not go back on my words. It must have shocked more than one. First of all I would like to apologize to the institution of Lyon and its supporters, the goal was not to put me at odds with them, he explained. There was no problem with the coach. We had a discussion after my interview and his. I was unfortunately injured and I was not fit to play with the team ”. What definitively turn the page in this soap opera?
