As revealed by The Parisian, a member of the Saint-Etienne workforce would have been surprised by the poor physical condition of the French central defender, recruited free. The former defender broke his silence on the former Stade Rennais and Sevilla FC player and admitted that the 25-year-old footballer was not yet able to return to competition. “He’s been out of shape but that’s not it. He’s not quite ready. He played 90 minutes with the reserves today. We know there are risks, that’s why we took on more players than expected. »

As a reminder, Joris Gnagnon is one of the seven winter recruits of the 20th in Ligue 1, opposed this Saturday to Montpellier on behalf of the 23rd day, with Bakary Sako, Sada Thioub, Paul Bernardoni, Eliaquim Mangala, Enzo Crivelli and Falaye Sacko.
