Ligue 1 – Saint-Étienne
As expected, Claude Puel replaces Ghislain Printant on the bench of AS Saint-Etienne, currently 19th in Ligue 1. The former Leicester will start with the derby on Sunday, facing Lyon.
The catastrophic results of AS Saint-Étienne will have logically got the better of Ghislain Printant. And to insufler novelty to this group in perdition, the leaders of the club of Forez decided to bet on Claude Puel who, after a double experiment in England with Southampton and Leicester, returns on his grounds. He signed a 3-year contract with Saint-Etienne, for the duties of coach and general manager, and will start this new mandate with a big piece: the reception of Olympique Lyonnais, his former club, in a derby fear between two teams in need of confidence. At the same time, Xavier Thuillot was appointed General Manager and Jacky Bonnevay Puel's first deputy.
