Jean-Louis Gasset: "I am delighted and proud to continue to coach AS Saint-Etienne. The project and the ambition of the leaders convinced me. For six months, I had an extraordinary pleasure to lead this team. Saint-Etienne is a city that breathes football. The people fervour that surrounds the club is a great engine for performance, I did not imagine elsewhere because I fully acknowledge the values of ASSE. I have only one goal: to prepare well for next season."
Frédéric Paquet, General Manager: "Continuing the adventure with Jean-Louis Gasset was a priority and a no-brainer given the results of the last six months as he transformed the professional group in record time. With the experience and human qualities of Jean-Louis, the team that played for the maintenance in the first part of the season, has been involved in the fight for the European places in the second part. We hope, all together, to start next season in the momentum of our end of the 17/18 championship and keep this dynamic sport that excited the fans."
Padaryt top4 komanda, tai reiškia išstumti lauk kažką iš OM, OL, Monaco. O čia jau kalbam apie 3 kartus biudžeto didinimą kaip minimum, completely griaunant algų kepurę arba gerokai aukščiau ją pakeliant. O dar kaip kitaip sakant, tai reikia ieškot sugar dadžių, o ne tokių baibokų, kokius Lille gavo.
