In his show Rothen Ignite This Monday on RMC, Jerome Rothen challenges Pascal Dupraz. Our mentor AS Saint-Etienne asks the coach to refocus on his mission when his team, in the event of a play-off, remains four games without a win in Ligue 1.
The final sprint promises not to be breathless in foreclosure. Seven days later, AS Saint-tienne finished 18th in Ligue 1. In the play-off position, with one point ahead of Bordeaux and four points over Metz. In this context, the reception of Brest promises to be significant, Geoffroy-Guichard on Saturday (5 p.m.). Like all upcoming matches. At the time of his survival game in the elite lineup, Pascal Dupraj’s players will have to regain confidence after four unsuccessful matches. Especially since they are building on the improvement they achieved at Lorient (6-2) last Friday.
It remains to be seen whether their coaches will find the springs needed for their salvation. Dupraj, who arrived in December last year, had to face more difficulties for a few weeks after a solid baptism. And Jerome Rothen has an explanation for this. “Once he won two or three games, he wanted to expand. He never made the request internally, but he knows how to get his messages across to the press, our consultant told RMC on his show Rothen It has ignited the management a little bit, which is attacking the players today (…)
“Do your coaching work!”
Rothen believes that Dupraz should now turn his self-criticism to focus on his primary mission: to keep ASSE in Ligue 1 and end a poor series of results. “You draw at home against Troyes (1-1) by equalizing on an act of the game. Back then, you take a monumental slap with a play ethic, by drawing a non-match against Marseilles (2-4) , which is the absolute naught. Then you take a six from Lorient (6-2),” recalls the former midfielder.
“Players have to question themselves, but Mr. Dupraz, questions himself too, he continues. And, once and forever, do your job as a coach! The Role of a Coach A Team with a more clear strategy. What is currently being done. And above all, personal interests, you put them aside and you will see in May, hopefully your team will be retained.”
