Fofana and ASSE, the big push

AS Saint-Etienne is playing an oh so important match this Wednesday (7 p.m.) in Ligue 1 on the lawn of OGC Nice. The Greens (18th) are currently play-offs in the championship.

ASSE (31 points) still has three games to play this season in Ligue 1. Three finals for Greens, 18th in Ligue 1. The first will be this Wednesday (7 p.m.) in Nice. In the standings, Pascal Dupraz’s men are three points ahead of 19th place occupied by FC Metz. It is also the margin which separates them from FC Lorient, 17th and for the moment maintained in Ligue 1. This meeting in Nice is therefore crucial. But beware of the Aiglons, who are playing for the top of the table and who could temporarily take fourth place in the championship in the event of a victory against AS Saint-Etienne. Before this trip to the Côte d’Azur, the tension is logically strong among fans and observers of the Greens. It is not Wesley Fofana, now defender of Leicester and former club, who will say the opposite.

Fofana provides strong support to Saint-Etienne

Trained in Saint-Etienne, Fofana does not want to see the club go down to Ligue 2 or play dangerous play-offs in the coming days. In an interview with the Square Mediathe 21-year-old Frenchman took the opportunity to send a strong message to Pascal Dupraz’s players. “I think the maintenance will be done. I always watch the games. I saw that they have a great team. They did some great recruiting this winter. The coach manages to recreate something with this group. I believe in them, I hope they will. I talk to them all the time, I tell them they’re going to keep going. That there is nothing to worry about. You know what to do, don’t come down. After everything the club has done, you’re not the one who’s going to bring him down anyway! Stay in Ligue 1 for everyone’s sake and I don’t care anyway “Said a Fofana who takes the situation of his former club to heart. After their trip to Nice on Wednesday, AS Saint-Etienne will receive Reims then go to Nantes. Two teams that have nothing left to play in Ligue 1.
