AS Saint-Etienne : ASSE: Dupraz should expect departures… | ASSE News

The situation promises to be delicate for the Greens with departures already planned for the end of the season.

This week in the columns of Progress, Loïc Perrin took stock of the winter transfer window of AS Saint-Étienne, rich in arrivals but very poor in departures.

“A failure to have managed to reduce the workforce further? It was a will. With Assane (Diousse), for example, we mentioned it. Even if the coach appreciates his state of mind and takes him into the group, you have to try to find the best compromise. For that, you have to discuss with the players, be clear. That’s what we did with Assane. Unfortunately, he has not found a new project but there are transfer windows, in certain countries, which have not been completed. Not excluded that players can still leave? Maybe even if today there is nothing concrete.” , explained the sports coordinator of ASSE, who above all foresees a big wave of departures at the end of the season.

“Are we thinking about the 22 players who are coming to the end of their contract? We should normally start preparing next year’s squad, but the urgency of the situation makes things complicated. Will they all go away? Not necessarily. We will have a discussion with them. Today, they are free to engage wherever they want. Maybe for some, it’s already done even if we don’t have the info. »
