The keys to the pro team were taken from him. Claude Puel was not the coach of AS Saint-Étienne this Monday morning. He was sacked by the club this Sunday after a 5-0 defeat against Rennes at Jeffrey-Quizard Stadium. The logical and expected result after such a room, Jean-Guy Riou assessed this morning, was the guest of France Bleu Saint-tienne Loire, President of the Stéphanois Supporters Union.
“It was a decision, in my opinion, we had to make“, He explains.”There may even have been a need to take this before. Whether at Geoffroy-Guichard or abroad, or counting 5-0 at home, we can’t afford the disappointments in every game. Anyway, you need an electroshock, so unfortunately Puel is a fuse.“
Not the necessary algorithms
But for Jean-Gy Riou, who has been demanding the resignation of the manager for several weeks, Claude Puel alone is not responsible for the current situation. “We can not just throw stones at Claude Puel. He probably did not have the means he should have had when he signed at Saint-tienne. He set up a plan, but this plan was ruined by various facts. First there was the Kovit-19 and this early result of the championship. Following that, we won the Coupe de France final without any Saint-Étienne supporters. Then Puel can not be hired or at least hired, so this is complicated. He certainly had a plan that might have been possible, but it must have certainly been more important than what was available to him.
According to the USS President, The name of Claude Pauline’s replacement will give clues about the future of the club. “If we had the Nether-Howard pair, the club would actually be sold. If you call Dupras or another trainer, it will give the wrong signal. Because if the coach has to leave in a month, a month and a half, because the club has bought it, it can be problematic. We are going to lay off two coaches in a few more weeks.“
