Pascal Dupraz, the new coach of AS Saint-Etienne, would have asked his management to recruit a central defender as a priority.
Managers from Saint-Etienne are working behind the scenes to strengthen the workforce during this transfer market. In search of a buyer and wanting to avoid a descent of the first team in League 2 at the end of the season, Bernard Caïazzo and Roland Romeyer, the two bosses of the Forez club, decided to release the checkbook for winter recruitment.
« My feeling is the relentless observation that we have lost, confided Pascal Dupraz at the end of the meeting. We only played half time. The first, with a lot of tension, we did not dispute. It’s a hell of a handicap. I take two players out at half-time but I could have taken everyone out. »
According to daily information the team, the Savoyard technician wants to attract a defensive rock in the coming weeks and this despite the arrival of Joris Gnagnon. Without a club since leaving Valencia last summer, Eliaquim Mangala would be part of the list of recruiters from Saint-Etienne according to But.
