Following the revelation of an email accusing Christophe Galtier of racism, an investigation was opened by the courts. Presumed author of the message, Julien Fournier was heard by the investigators.
If it is much less highlighted in recent weeks, the Galtier affair has not fallen into oblivion. Since the revelation of the content of an email attributed to Julien Fournier (former football director of OGC Nice) and unveiled by Romain Molina and Daniel Riolo last May, investigators progress. Accused in this message of having made racist remarks, Christophe Galtier has not yet been heard but for his part, Julien Fournier has been invited to speak to the police.
The information was relayed on Monday by RMC, which also reports the words of the former manager of the Nice club to AFP. ” I was heard a few days ago, I don’t want to comment. The general public will therefore not know more for the moment, but the preliminary investigation opened by the Nice prosecutor’s office for suspicions of ” discrimination based on alleged race or religious affiliation is well and truly underway.
The investigation continues
The media also recalls that searches took place at the headquarters of the Riviera club. Since the beginning of the case, several players and relatives of each other have spoken. Christophe Galtier received the support of only a few former players. On his side, Didier Digard, the current Nice coach, was more enigmaticstating only that ” the truth will come out anyway“. Investigators are working on this.
