Two rooms, two atmospheres. On the social networks, Auxerre supporters expressed their joy at returning to Ligue 1 after Sunday’s victory in penalties in Saint-Étienne (1: 1, 5 cards to 4), Djibril Cissé at the airport in the lead.
If no Saint-Etienne player spoke publicly, the former responded to the ASSE’s relegation to Ligue 2, such as Wesley Fofana (“Terrible Evening”), Brandao, “sad,” or even Valentin Vada, who believes the Greens will return stronger. “. And even Alexandre Bompard, the son of former Green President Alain.
Politicians also commented on this terrible Sunday evening, backed by incidents. Régis Juanico, a Member of the Loire, is causing a “nightmare” and it has no heart to “comment on this retaliatory match of the dam or the sports season”. His counterpart Jean-Michel Mis showed his loyalty to the club regardless of division.
The mayor of Saint-Étienne and the president of Metropolis, Gael Perdriau, “condemned the dangerous actions that followed the meeting” and advocated a “return to peace.” In a long contribution, he asked the shareholders for an “explanation”. “We really need to learn from all the lessons and the consequences of this serious sporting failure so that the club can finally start again on new solid foundations with a truly viable and serious sports project that can finally provide a long-term perspective. . »
On Twitter, loyal supporters also expressed their immense disappointment, often crowned by a very difficult night. “For those who have fallen asleep, it must be weird to wake up in Ligue 2,” @lulcere said.
If it is still difficult for many to imagine the Greens developing in the second division, some are trying to project themselves. To other stadiums that need to be visited, but especially to the workforce to be rebuilt. With fourteen players at the end of the contract and looking for a coach, Saint-Etienne leaders will really have a job.
