Auxerre a goal, and under the eyes of the referee. The ASSE midfielder did not complain about the man in black and continued to play as if nothing had happened.
“But I’m not looking for an apology!” Pascal Dupraz assured.

Since the air conditioning in the locker room does not work, it is 35 or 40 degrees … Was there Guy Roux? I do not know. Since then, we make sure there are as few people in the locker room as players As soon as I made the changes I wanted to make, I went outside.The locker room for guests is very small and the air conditioning… We knew about the greed of Mr. Guy Roux had to be imitated.The air conditioning turned on only when the players warmed up.I was fine but I was the only one. Then it went out very quickly. Guy Roux? I could give him the address of the cooling mechanic, “said coach Saint-Etienne at the Amazon Prime Video microphone.
