Last of the French championship and still without success after 11 days, the situation of the ASSE greatly worries football watchers. After their stoppage-time draw against Angers, Saint-Etienne received excellent news, which should delight fans from Saint-Etienne just before a crucial trip against the FC Metz this Saturday.
ASSE: The Greens make an important return
Plagued by big economic worries since the pandemic, AS Saint-Etienne tries to survive by making mercato blows at 0 € and extending its biggest promises of the future. Figurehead of this golden youth of Saint-Etienne, the Franco-British doorman Étienne Green, recently saw his adventure extend in the Forez to the delight of its leaders.
Reassuring against OL a few weeks ago, the 21-year-old was out shortly before the break against Strasbourg the day after, after being hit in a clash with his defender Timothée Kolodziejczak. Green even lost consciousness for a while before coming to his senses and giving way to Stefan Bajic.
Absent against SCO last weekend, Étienne Green made his return to training on Tuesday with ASSE, and will therefore be well present for the bottom of the table clash against Metz. As a reminder, the Garnats, currently 19th in Ligue 1, are only a small point from the Greens and a defeat of the men of Claude Puel this Saturday would act more the sporting crisis in Sainté.
The Ligerian club will therefore be able to reassure itself, by acting on the return of one of the greatest hopes of Saint-Etienne in the cages. Great news, after the signature in pro the very promising El-Hadji Dieye. The Senegalese striker, like Green, could know in the near future more protagonists at Saint-Etienne, in order to rejuvenate an aging squad, especially in attack.
