Claude Puel, the coach of AS Saint-Etienne, did not spare his men who recorded, on Saturday, a seventh consecutive defeat in Ligue 1.
In 15th place in the ranking of League 1, the Stéphanois can no longer get their heads out of the water. The last point collected by the teammates of Denis Bouanga dates back to September 20 against the FC Nantes (2-2). The Greens are not “up to the task” according to Claude Puel.
“We were not up to the task”
“It is not a question of putting excessive pressure on the group which generated excitement. We are all aware of the situation, said the French technician after the defeat against Brest (4-1). You have to react very quickly. Our next match against Lille will be primodrial. I like it when my team plays, is aggressive and puts on intensity. She may be unlucky, but we weren’t up to it. Why ? It’s up to us to find the right answers. “
“We have too many shortages”
The Saint-Etienne coach is already focused on the next meeting against the Losc. He hopes for a positive reaction from his foals. “We have to be much stronger defensively,” explained Claude Puel. We cannot offer so many favorable situations to the opponent. We have too many gaps. Against Lille, we will have to be more consistent than today. It won’t be difficult. “
