AS Saint-Etienne : ASSE (AS Saint-Étienne football) | Puel: “An interesting match to live and play” | ASSE News

Are you going to find players for this derby?

“Apart from Fofana returning from suspension, there will be no other return. Khazri, Nordin, Hamouma are in the return phase but they did not participate in the collective training. “

What about Stéphane Ruffier?

“The conditions for his return are not required. Quite simply. The rest is internal cooking. “

You are misclassified. In fact, is there even more pressure surrounding this derby?

“It’s an interesting game to live and play. But I detach myself from the context. You have to be aware of the environment. You have to be careful not to outwit and stay lucid. You must reset the forward gear. You have to be psychologically armed to get out of there. And gradually go up in the ranking, without focusing on the possible consequences. “

With the reception of Rennes in the French Cup (Thursday 9 pm), you will play two very important matches…

“This is a very important week. We are going to chain two very important appointments in the last two competitions that we have left. Then there will be the math of Bordeaux, also very important. “

You will meet Juninho again. What memories do you keep of him from your Lyon adventure?

“I remember a very great player, who prepared very well, measured, not necessarily expressive in the locker room but who was an example of professionalism. “
