ASSE: divorce in progress? • Football news • Pro / amateur football news

Beaten for the fifth time in a row in Ligue 1 against Nice on home soil (0-3), Claude Puel’s ASSE looks grim at the start of the championship. And the patience of the club, in all its components, begins to reach its limits.

“Puel resignation” heard against Nice

During the meeting on Saturday, the supporters expressed their dissatisfaction via a banner denouncing the behavior of the coach – “Before playing the prosecutor, play your role of coach” – and “Puel resignation” reasoned in the tribunes of Geoffroy-Guichard. To this hostility from the kop, it is rumored that the 60-year-old coach is about to be let go by his leaders and more particularly Roland Romeyer. The majority co-shareholder of the Greens would find it increasingly difficult to work with his general manager. The same goes for the locker room. L’Equipe reveal that the coach would have had an altercation with Denis Bouanga during half-time, after replacing him. The Gabonese striker went straight to the shower instead of listening to the new instructions from Puel, who had demanded it. The coach had previously apologized to his players for being wrong in the tactical configuration of the team in the first period.

ASSE is definitely going through a turbulent period. In addition to its poor performance on the field, there are multiple negotiations concerning the club’s buyout. Last week, the Crown Prince of Cambodia was keenly interested in a takeover of the Forez club but his file has not yet received the green light from the audit firm KPMG, responsible for examining the candidates’ files.
