The Greens withdraw number 24 from their former captain and “legend” Loïc Perrin


“Loïc is unique, Loïc is irreplaceable, Loïc is Green for life! In a press release published Wednesday evening on its website, ASSE paid tribute to Loïc Perrin. The former Saint-Etienne defender, trained at the club before going on 17 seasons in the green jersey, has been withdrawn from the field since the Coupe de France final, lost on July 24, 2020 against PSG (0-1). Now ambassador of the Greens, “Capi” has seen his number 24 since Wednesday “officially withdrawn from the locker room of ASSE”.

“It will not be worn by any other player from AS Saint-Étienne. He is and will remain the number 24 of our emblematic captain, ”continues the club’s press release. We wish Loïc Perrin not to experience the same misadventure as Souleymane Diawara and Mathieu Valbuena, whose numbers 21 and 28 had been withdrawn from OM by Vincent Labrune in 2014. Or Patrice Evra, Valentin Rongier, Valère Germain and even the illustrious Antoine Rabillard have all been able to wear these numbers since.

A collector’s jersey produced in 470 copies

This is the first time that an ASSE player has benefited from such recognition, inspired by American sport, where the practice has been common for several decades. In addition, Le Coq Sportif has just published a collector’s jersey (sold on the site at 99 euros), in only 470 copies (the number of professional matches played by Loïc Perrin at the club).

We find above photos of the highlights of the career of the former defender of Saint-Etienne, starting with the Coupe de la Ligue won in 2013, and the names of the 205 teammates he worked with in Sainté. A figure that says a lot about the longevity of “a player who has become a legend”.
