ASSE: Claude Puel, the point of no return?
Claude Puel no longer wants Stéphane Ruffier in his team. The technician from Saint-Etienne does not like the player’s behavior and the latter’s agent has not helped. After the Greens’ goalkeeper was sidelined before the competition ended, a new milestone was reached in the opposition between the coach and the goalkeeper. For Claude Puel, as long as Stéphane Ruffier does not return to the squad with a better state of mind, he will be excluded.
Did Stéphane Ruffier deserve his dismissal?
And in recent days, the tone has risen a little more after a delay from Ruffier. The latter is awaiting dismissal from ASSE, which sided with his coach Claude Puel. Asked by GoalFootballClub In his column, Denis Balbir made no secret of his confidence in the leaders of Saint-Etienne, even though he knows that the decision is difficult to pass with the supporters. The reporter said: “On the Ruffier file, I tend to trust the coach and the club quite a bit. “Speaking of Stéphane Ruffier, Denis Balbir confides:” Even if I know him well and that I appreciate him humanely, I think his agent has ruined things. He’s at odds with the club. “
“A lot of players leave angry”
The Goal consultant goes on to say, “For me, it’s a little too easy to hit the coach or the club, to criticize the handling of the Ruffier case. And him, how he treated the club, his job, the competition? You have to see both sides. Certainly the wrongs are shared. After life goes on, a lot of players leave an angry club. We don’t know everything that happened. Maybe there are money stories behind it. I do not know… “
