St Étienne director Bernard Caïazzo has sensationally announced to our colleagues at But! that Frenchman and striker Bafétimbi Gomis will be returning to St Étienne.
“Bafétimbi Gomis will come back. That is sure and certain. But when, I don’t know. It does not just depend on us, not just on him. But I am sure that he will participate to take us to the next level, to help us enter into the top three.”
Caïazzo was then asked when Gomis might return:
“It will be in the near future. It does not just depend on us. We don’t control everything.”
