Despite the situation at ASSE, Xavier Thuilot believes that Claude Puel should not be replaced, whose future is however very uncertain.

ASSE has had a catastrophic start to the season. After 10 days, the Greens are last in Ligue 1 and still haven't won a single match. After a return to form in the derby against OL , ASSE relapsed in Strasbourg (1-5). Consequently, Claude Puel seems more threatened than ever. However, Xavier Thuilot , who held the post of general manager of the Forez club from October 2019 to last January, believes that no one is better placed than Claude Puel to straighten the bar.

Thuilot steps up to Puel

“His replacement would not make sense and I am not speaking as a friend but as a manager. Today, in this club, who are you replacing Claude Puel with? Who has more experience to take over? And given the situation: who would dare to come? Often, we replace the coach when we are at the end of a cycle and we feel that the coach is lacking in ideas or motivation. In these moments, you have lots of CVs! Today, apart from a few unemployed technicians ready to take the risk, given the complexity of the situation … Most of the technicians that I work with or that I have worked with will tell you that what is happening in Saint-Etienne is a miracle! Even if Sainté is 20th! Resist this pressure, build with these opposite scenarios, this permanent headwind … there is only someone like Claude! Me, I have known coaches who, in this situation, would have done everything to get fired, take their check and get out! », He says to Poteaux-Carrés.
