18. in Ligue 1, Saint-Etienne is on a favorable vote ahead of the L1-L2 return barrage against Auxerre, which takes place on Sunday at Geoffroy-Guichard. On Thursday night, ASSE brought a draw from Yonne (1-1). Although the Greens, who led from Zaydou Youssouf from the 15th minute, acknowledged the equalization from Gaëtan Perrin (87th) at the end of the match, they remain in a good position: the away goal rule remains in this duel, unlike in European competitions.
“In fact, this result is better than the excavation,” said Pascal Dupraz, Saint-Etienne’s coach, at the press conference, who nevertheless insisted that he point out [Gaëtan] Charbonnier, on the Auxerre goal.
Problem with air conditioning
He couldn’t help but pride at his opponents. Asked about his quick departure from the locker room during a break, Dupraz told Dupraz: “Since the air conditioning in the locker room is not working and it is 35 or 40 degrees … Has Guy Roux passed? I don’t know. We make sure that there are as few people in the locker room as possible so that the players can breathe. As soon as I made the changes I wanted to make, I left. »
A former technician from Evian-Thonon-Gaillard, TFC and Caen added a layer about the “very small” locker room. “We knew Mr. Guy Roux’s greed, he had to be imitated.” They only turned on the air conditioning when players were warming up. I was fine, but I was alone. Then he was quickly extinguished. Dupraz also offered to provide a “cooling specialist address” to former iconic AJA coach, who left his post 17 years ago.
