FOOTBALL - ASSE Mercato: Wesley Fofana, towards a Claude Puel crisis - leaders

At ASSE, the Wesley Fofana case, courted by Leicester, could lead to a serious crisis that could have a lasting impact on the club. Claude Puel refuses a departure of the defender while the two presidents of the club would be in favor.

ASSE Mercato: Puel disowned by Romeyer and Caïazzo?

The radio silence of Roland Romeyer and his partner Bernard Caïazzo on the Wesley Fofana file calls out. While ASSE reportedly received an offer of 30 million for the transfer of the center-back who replaced Loïc Perrin, Claude Puel was quick to voice his opposition to the player's departure. The latter may claim in the columns of the daily L'Equipe that he accepted the offer from the English club, no one has moved at the club so far. According to our colleagues at Goal, this position of Claude Puel would not be collegial at As Saint-Étienne. The two presidents Roland Romeyer and Bernard Caïazzo would not wish to refuse such an offer which could further ease the financial pressure on the club. This source explains it by saying: "the direction of ASSE, in lack of liquidity, is ready to accept the offer, of the order of 30 M €. But it complies for the moment with the will of Puel. "


A possible decision of this kind should certainly precipitate AS Saint-Étienne in a serious institutional crisis. Claude Puel should not accept such a public disavowal. Appointed general manager, the 59-year-old technician is testing the real extent of his power with the Wesley Fofana dossier. Even if he agrees with Xavier Thuilot, the general manager he had appointed, on the need to keep the player at the club for a while, the two shareholders would be opposed to such a proposal. We imagine that for the two presidents of ASSE, Claude Puel displays this position to get the Foxes to improve their proposal. Their silence, which shows they are observing the manager in his handling of this file, could end if they see failure.

Retain Wesley Fofana, the possible consequences

If he were to stay at the club, Wesley Fofana should logically not fail to knock on the doors of his managers to demand a new contract. The young man has shown in the columns of L’Equipe that he is very sensitive to the financial aspect as he emphasized his desire to secure his future in addition to helping those close to him. A refusal by ASSE to transfer it this summer for 30 million euros would be recognition of its high market value. The 75,000 euros gross monthly salary he receives in Sainté should very quickly become insignificant in his eyes. He tells himself that the English club offered him more than 3 times what he wins at the Greens.

Roland Romeyer and Bernard Caïazzo not being ready for this type of negotiation, they could indeed open the door to the start for Wesley Fofana. One of the reasons is that a change in the defender’s contract could encourage other young people to make the same request. The sports project led by Claude Puel, focused on a young and inexpensive squad, could then take the lead in the wing.
