Ruffier frankly balances

Former last emblematic rampart of AS Saint-Etienne, from 2011 to 2021, Stéphane Ruffier cannot digest his end of journey with the Greens.

In an interview with So Foot, the man who wore the French team jersey three times takes shots at his former coach, Claude Puel. “ As soon as he arrived, this individual wanted to downsize and chose to hit the big guys. By releasing Ruffier, he gave himself credibility for the future, except that he decided to use a very strong approach, making me appear as less than nothing, a guy who had nothing to do in a group and who sowed terror in a locker room. »

Stéphane Ruffier, who took legal action against ASSE, considering himself the victim of “ moral harassment » – « It involved daily harassment, public humiliation in the press… », he breathes – is now claiming 7.12 million euros from his former club for the damage suffered.

What I just want is for the damage to be repaired, for justice to be done, because I experienced a year of harassment from a man who set up a demolition company against me. » Also in his sights, the co-owner of the Greens Roland Romeyer, who would have done everything to discredit him in the media.
