While he is no longer in the smell of sanctity internally, Claude Puel would no longer be fully supported by his players, who could however continue to fight for very personal reasons. Explanations.

After the draw against Angers (2-2), Claude Puel sent a clear message for his future. “I remain focused on my players. (…) My position is that of a coach who is close to his players, who wants them to be able to show their qualities, and they do, but we have to find more efficiency and above all take less stupid goals. There is quality in this group, I repeat it ”, he assured the microphone of Prime Video. Despite everything, his internal situation is getting more complicated.

Puel confronted with players at the end of their contract

Indeed, according to information from L'Equipe, Claude Puel has less and less support within its management, and above all, its message is no longer getting through to its players. Despite everything, there is little chance that he will be let go by his locker room. And for good reason, as the sports daily reminds us, 17 players see their contracts end on June 30 and not the least. Ryad Boudebouz , Wahbi Khazri , Romain Hamouma , Arnaud Nordin or Timothée Kolodziejczak are in this situation. Therefore, they are all going to fight in order to stand out individually and not jeopardize their chance to find a new club next season. In other words, Claude Puel could well be saved by his players … and their personal ambitions.
