Saint-Etienne name Pascal Dupraz as new coach
Paris (AFP) – Bottom-placed French Ligue 1 club Saint-Etienne on Tuesday named Pascal Dupraz as their new coach following the sacking of Claude Puel.
Issued on: Modified:
Dupraz has signed until the end of the season, replacing former Monaco, Lyon and Leicester boss Puel who became the first Ligue 1 coach to be dismissed this season after a 5-0 loss at home to Rennes last weekend.
Dupraz, who was himself sacked as coach of second-tier Caen in March, has previous experience of taking over a club in trouble, having successfully helped to bail out Toulouse in 2016.
Saint-Etienne are bottom of Ligue 1 on 12 points, with just two wins from 18 games.
