'Three quarters of my players are a******s' - Montpellier chairman Louis Nicollin blasts team after poor start

The MHSC supremo delivered a damning verdict on the playing squad in the aftermath of the club's latest defeat to Marseille
Montpellier chairman Louis Nicollin has launched a scathing attack on the club's players after their dismal start to the season.

MHSC come into the new campaign as defending champions, yet after three games they find themselves winless and occupying a relegation slot in Ligue 1.

Losing key players such as Olivier Giroud has no doubt harmed René Girard's chances of picking up where he left off last season, but the chairman was quick to deliver his verdict after their latest defeat to Marseille.

When asked if Montpellier can bounce back from a disappointing start, Nicollin responded "Yes, when you have intelligent guys. But I think three quarters of the ones there are a******s, so that won't work. I'm disappointed," reports RMCSport.

"Beware, I'm getting older and that this isn't a good Paillade. If you say nothing of the sort, then it's not La Paillade.

"I think the ones out there must pack their bags quickly and take themselves elsewhere so they don't s**t on us any more.

"And so that Louis Nicollin and Michel Mezy can do some re-recruiting."
