“ASSE is a historic team, it’s a very popular club”
The first player to be introduced to the press was Ibrahima Waji. The Senegalese striker expressed his joy at being at ASSE and in particular wanted to send a message to one of his new teammates, Jean-Philippe Krasso. “The boys are really nice. I watched the match against Bastia. The first time I was told about Saint-Etienne, I couldn’t believe it. The coach and Loïc (Perrin) convinced me. I saw myself in the club’s project and in its objectives… and then it’s Saint-Étienne too. Saint-Étienne is a dream for the Senegalese, everyone in Senegal knows ASSE, it’s a historic team, it’s a very popular club. I’m a deep player. Krasso is a great player technically and it’s fun to play with players like that. he scores a lot of goals, it’s nice to play with a player like that. He can leave me spaces when picking up. I followed Saint-Etienne when they were in Ligue 1. Playing there is a dream come true. »
“I had the feeling deep inside me that the story was not over”
Returned to ASSE after leaving the club in 2019, Leo Petrot always knew that his story with theAS Saint-Etienne was not finished. “I spent 7 years here, so I’m really happy to be back. When I left, I had the feeling deep inside me that the story was not over. I always thought I could come back. I know Laurent (Batlles) very well and I am very happy to find him again. It’s an argument, it made me progress a lot. I watched all the matches. There was a complicated start, but we are still on a very good result against Bastia. The important thing is to continue now to go as high as possible. This is a dream. I had been able to form a group with Loïc (Perrin), but playing Geoffroy-Guichard is a dream. I don’t know if there was a click between Andrézieux and Lorient, there were two months between my departure and my first pro match. »
“Matthew made things easier”
Arrived from Lorient, Thomas Monconduit is proud to reach ASSE. He admits that the arrival of Matthew Dreyer facilitated his transfer. The community particularly wanted to express itself on the importance of the Saint-Etienne public. “It’s a legendary club, you know that more than I do. My father was a fan of the club. Matthieu (Dreyer) made things easier, that’s for sure. It’s always easier to have a teammate. I want us to play and I know it will work. Benjamin (Bouchouari) and Dylan (Chambost), it plays. I had no doubts: in Lorient, I knew that things were going to settle down. I can’t wait to be on the other side, because the first in Geoffroy-Guichard, I took 3-0. When the public pushes, it’s hard. »
