St Étienne’s search for a new manager continues and their latest move has been to contact the entourage of Patrick Vieira to gauge possible interest, according to RMC.
There appears to be a split opinion between co-presidents Ronald Romeyer and Bernard Caiazzo, with one of them seeking to obtain the services of a big name manager and the other looking to economise in their selection.
Caiazzo has met with Claudio Ranieri, but his salary demands are exorbitant. Romeyer on his side favours Red Bull Salzburg boss Oscar Garcia, whilst Lausanne manager Fabio Celestini, who has met with Les Verts twice, remains on the shortlist.
ASSE will also continue to watch Claude Puel’s situation at Southampton.
