The state of mind of the Greens, Giovanni Castaldi is shocked

AS Saint-Etienne was beaten by Stade de Reims on Saturday in Ligue 1. A defeat that plunges the Greens a little more into a nervous breakdown.

The supporters of the Greens have a lot of reasons to be very worried about their club this season in Ligue 1. Last in the standings, the Stéphanois once again sank against Stade de Reims on Saturday. In addition to the defeat, it is the behavior of the players of AS Saint-Etienne that raises questions. If Julien Sablé recently took over the club on an interim basis, no shock has occurred in Champagne. According to the latest echoes, Pascal Dupraz would also hold the rope to be inducted coach of the Greens until the end of the season at least. But can the arrival of a new coach save the Saint-Etienne club from a possible relegation at the end of the season? This is the question many observers ask themselves. For Giovanni Castaldi, AS Saint-Etienne has hit rock bottom against Reims.

Giovanni Castaldi dismayed by the level of AS Saint-Etienne

On RTL’s antenna, the journalist has indeed given a scathing opinion on the subject. “Saint-Etienne was below everything. (…) As much under Puel, they missed matches. But I’ve never seen a state of mind like this. Frankly, you have a team petrified from the kick-off. They were afraid of everything, afraid of taking goals, afraid of attacking. There was no will to keep the ball. It’s terrible. It was the army of shadows. It was the worst game I have seen for AS Saint-Etienne, by far. Truly…”, said Giovanni Castaldi, distraught with the behavior of Saint-Etienne players against the Stade de Reims. On the next day of Ligue 1, AS Saint-Etienne will host FC Nantes in Geoffroy-Guichard. Not an easy task given the level displayed by the Canaries in recent weeks.
