After the draw snatched against Angers (2-2), Claude Puel posted a clear message about his future on the ASSE bench.
The AS Saint-Etienne had a very eventful evening. And for good reason, last in Ligue 1, the Forez club played a crucial meeting against Angers Friday night and everything had started badly. The kick-off was indeed given an hour late because of the smoke jets from Saint-Etienne supporters, and the SCO quickly led 2 to 0. A catastrophic scenario, but the < strong> ASSE managed to reverse the trend by equalizing in added time. A relief for Claude Puel who does not intend to give up his post so easily.
Puel does not intend to give up
“There was no crisis meeting, it was a meeting like every week, not a crisis meeting, sorry. My situation … I stay focused on my players. To see them as I see them tonight, not to let go, it's nice. There are young players who live through difficult and very formative things in a difficult environment linked to our situation, they show quality. What they went through tonight is difficult. I would have liked them to be rewarded with a victory. My position is that of a coach close to his players, who wants his players to take their quality to find more efficiency. What interests me is to remain pragmatic, to be professional. I am close to my players and I want to go for a victory. We have a quality group, if we manage to move up the rankings, everything will happen naturally, ”he explained on Prime Video.
