While AS Saint-Etienne are still fighting to stay in Ligue 1, Pascal Dupraz was asked about his future at a news conference this Friday. The Greens coach has turned it down: he’s on a mission in the fore and doesn’t want to think about the rest.

And nothing can deter him from this goal, especially not his short-term future. Present at a press conference this Friday, on the eve of Reims’ reception from the side for the 37th day of Ligue 1 (this Saturday at 9 pm), the Greens’ coach, at the end of the contract on 30 June, hammered. That he had absolutely no idea what was to come.

“I have free will. If so, I would tell them ‘don’t opt for Dupraz because I’d like to go home’. No one promised me or imposed anything. The deal was clear: you come, you es st. – keep Etienne in Ligue 1 and we don’t talk about what happens next. We never talked about it and we can’t talk about it! At the end of the season if my manager doesn’t talk to me Even if I do, I don’t have to be angry. It’s not agreeable. We can be comfortable with it at age 60. I’m on a mission that pleases me, which is hard. I have a hard time achieving it. Proud and proud. It’s not cinema”, developed Forezian Koch.
“The more prestigious coaches have broken their teeth with this squad”
“I want to be there for all the little hands in the club because they annoy me every time they shake my hand,” he continued. The players have to do it, I trust them. Although I know it’s a one in two chance! I’m not going to tremble from here with the ghost of the exile. ,
