Farioli has only been at Nice for a short time but has quickly made a big impact on the club. Nice is standing close to PSG in the rankings even though last season they were only 9th.
Regarding the process INEOS went through over the summer to appoint him, Farioli said: “They did data analysis and from the filter came some names, and I was one of those names. If If I’m not mistaken, it was in January or if not, before that.”
“At the end of the season, when they changed the coach, I had my first interview with sporting director Florent Ghisolfi and Dave (Brailsford, sporting director at INEOS). It was quite a long interview. , about five hours or something.”
“It was a really good introduction and the next day I had an interview with Jean-Claude Blanc (executive director of INEOS Sport). I also had another meeting with Florent, the CEO and president of Nice.”
“A lot of meetings and a lot of hours, but I feel very happy that they gave me the opportunity to express myself. They were very, very prepared about everything and they were really aware of who was in front of them.”
