Another big blow for the Greens!


While AS Saint-Etienne have regained their colors in the league, the Greens will have to do without one of their attackers until the end of the season. The galleys therefore continue to follow for this legendary club of French football.

Laurent Batlles, ASSE Saint-Etienne

The gods of football are definitely not on the side of AS Saint-Etienne. The last few months have thus turned out to be nightmarish for the people of Saint-Etienne. At the end of last season, ASSE was relegated to Ligue 2, a first since 2004 and a historic humiliation for this bastion of sport in France. To top it off, the Greens started their 2022-2023 season with 3 points less due to the serious incidents that occurred during the play-off against Auxerre.

After 23 contested days, the men of Laurent Batlles are in sixteenth place in the Ligue 2 standings with a very small point ahead of the red zone. If the maintenance therefore seems far from certain, Saint-Etienne remains on a good series of two straight wins which has given some hope to the many fans of the Forez team.

ASSE: Gaëtan Charbonnier out until the end of the season

However, bad news has come to undermine the morale of the Greens in the past few hours. On its Twitter account, the club has indeed announced that “Gaëtan Charbonnier presented a serious sprain of the right knee with a rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament”adding that “ASSE regrets to announce that his season is already over and gives him all its support”. Recruited during the winter transfer window, the former Brest resident has shown great things since his arrival (6 starts, 3 goals and 1 assist).

The first interested party did not hide his frustration and sadness by speaking directly to the supporters. “Difficult to cash in on this project, this operation was close to my heart, I put all my energy into it, I found a group of friends ready to fight to maintain this club, I am convinced that the future looks bright. All your messages touch me, thank you from the bottom of my heart”wrote the 34-year-old striker on his Twitter account.
