St Étienne striker Loïs Diony: “Let’s be real, we are in a relegation fight.”

Speaking to reporters yesterday in the mixed zone following St Étienne’s 3-2 defeat to Brest, their fourth league loss in five matches, goalscorer and striker Loïs Diony was frank in his assessment of his team’s current situation.

“St Étienne clearly should not be in the position that it is in (16th)… It hurts me to say that we are in the relegation fight, but we have to be realistic. There are still many matches to come, but we are on a run with an enormous amount of consecutive defeats.”
