Last of Ligue 1 without the slightest victory in 10 days, with the worst attack and the worst defense in the championship, the Greens are this season at a pace of disaster class absolute. The encouraging start observed in the derby against OL (1-1) was followed, on the return from the international break, by a monumental slap on Sunday in Strasbourg (5-1). Suffice to say that we did not give much for Claude Puel’s future at that time, despite a severance allowance, estimated at around 4 million euros for his staff and him (seven months before the end of his contract), which poses a problem for Saint-Etienne finances.
But contrary to what was asserted RMC Sport Monday evening, the manager of ASSE has not (yet) been sacked. The club thus indicates to 20 Minutes that Claude Puel is present, this Tuesday, to animate the training session. He will therefore also be on the bench, except for the umpteenth rebound by then at the head of the club, to lead the match against Angers, Friday (9 p.m.), which promises to be at high risk in the Cauldron.
