AS Saint-Etienne recorded a seventh consecutive defeat in Ligue 1 this Saturday against Brest. And things are starting to heat up for Claude Puel.
This victory at the Vélodrome against OM on September 17 in Ligue 1 already seems a long way off, a result that put ASSE at the top of the Championship. Since then, not only have AS Saint-Etienne only taken one point in eight games, it was in Nantes, but then the Greens have chained seven defeats in a row before receiving Lille in a week, equaling the worst series of the long history of ASSE. In other words, Claude Puel’s ears are whistling, because not only does Saint-Etienne lose, but in addition the Saint-Etienne players do not really know which way to turn. Again this Saturday we saw the first 45 minutes of abysmal weakness. And for Philippe Sanfourche, it is now clear that the AS Saint-Etienne coach is in great danger, as the atmosphere is starting to be tense on the Etrat side.
The head of RTL’s football section does not see things going well for Claude Puel. ” The shipwreck is complete. Claude Puel has less and less support, he is angry with a lot of people. We do not understand his strategy, there for example he is relaunching Boudebouz. Sportingly, what is the point if it is not to make him play a few games to sell him, because he is on the list of players who are normally on the start? What I see, what we ended up getting used to the fact that Ruffier is no longer the goalkeeper of AS Saint-Etienne and that we have this poor Jessy Moulin, even if I didn’t nothing against him, but when we still see his match against Brest. I don’t know if we can quantify, but the number of points not won this season, because it was not Ruffier who was in the goal, but it weighs heavily. Saint-Etienne is going into the wall and I don’t think it will last until the end of the season “, Warned Philippe Sanfourche after the Saint-Etienne shipwreck in Brittany.
