Nice Teenager Sacked After Stealing Dolberg's €70k Watch

Nice have confirmed that they have sacked promising forward Lamine Diaby-Fadiga after he admitted to stealing a watch owned by new signing Kasper Dolberg.

The teenager was regarded as one of the shining lights of their academy and was a promising France Under-18 international, but after making just seven appearances for the top team for a combined 183 minutes without a goal, Diaby-Fadiga now finds himself clubless.

Reports first surfaced about the incident a fortnight ago, with Dolberg going to the police over the loss of the watch, which was valued at a reported €70,000 and was taken on September 16.

A statement released by the Ligue 1 side, who had not previously commented on the matter, reads: "OGC Nice and Lamine Diaby-Fadiga parted ways on Tuesday.

"Following the theft of Kasper Dolberg’s watch from the professional first team’s changing room, and the subsequent admission of the player, the club decided to cancel its contract with the 18-year-old forward with immediate effect." Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
