Pointed by a large majority of Saint-Etienne supporters as the main responsible for this galley season for the Greens (19th in Ligue 1 one day from the end), Roland Romeyer had a very difficult weekend. According to Progress, the chairman of the board of directors of AS Saint-Etienne was indeed the victim of tags at the entrance to his home, on the night of Saturday to Sunday. The 76-year-old man filed a complaint and an investigation was opened to find the perpetrator or perpetrators.
According to World Eleven, one of the inscriptions found is “Cross the road”, while the leader lives opposite a cemetery, in a town located between Loire and Haute-Loire. A few hours earlier, ASSE suffered a defeat (1-2) against Reims synonymous with a return to the relegation zone in Ligue 2, before a last match under very high tension, Saturday (9 p.m.) in Nantes.
In the aftermath, many ultras from Saint-Etienne went to the Geoffroy-Guichard stadium, behind closed doors during this match, to howl their anger with “Direction resignation”, while throwing several dozen pyrotechnic devices in the direction of the Cauldron. This month of May promises to be explosive at all levels at AS Saint-Etienne, now at the gates of Ligue 2.
