Present at a press conference this Thursday before the trip to Metz, Claude Puel announced that he had not discussed his future with his management.
Being one of the big people responsible for the catastrophic start of the Greens’ season in League 1, the Castrais technician has never been so close to dismissal. Last in the general classification with no victory on the clock, the teammates of Ryad Boudebouz can’t get their heads out of the water. The bad results follow one another for the Greens and each week that passes adds additional pressure on the shoulders of Claude Puel.
Passing in front of the media, the Stéphanois coach was keen to deny the rumors surrounding his future. ” I interact regularly with the leaders, he confided. We have meetings with the management board regularly, since the confinement. My situation was never mentioned there. While his leaders are already looking for a successor, Claude Puel, who has always been imperturbable, is perfectly aware that he is in an ejection seat. His maintenance on the bench of AS Saint-Etienne will necessarily go through a good result, this Sunday afternoon, in Metz for the 12e lifting of Ligue 1.
