After leading 2-0 against Lorient, the Stéphanois collapsed and conceded six goals in this match which opposed two teams from the bottom of the Ligue 1 table. For Pascal Dupraz, coach of the Greens, it was all his fault in this defeat.
A hope, then the fall. The Greens, who led 2-0, eventually collapsed. The Saint-Etienne club was beaten 6-2 by Lorient at the start of the 31st day of Ligue 1.
“The responsibility” for this defeat, “is mine”
The Stéphanois coach, Pascal Dupraz, returned disappointed from this match, which had however started well. “The responsibility for this defeat, I do not share it. It is mine, I am a coach. When you make a start like this in a match at stake, the coach that I am must do everything to ensure that ‘He retains humility, respect for our profession and its fundamentals,’ he says.
“From the moment we wanted to add more, we believed too quickly, out of vanity, that we were probably going to win. From there, we expose ourselves to disappointment. We had a feeling that it was going to be so,” he adds, saddened. This defeat increasingly compromises the future of the Greens in Ligue 1. At the bottom of the table, they are 19th in the standings this Saturday morning.
