Saint-Étienne name club legend Loïc Perrin as new Sporting Coordinator

After the removal of Claude Puel as coach, Saint-Étienne have named former defender and club legend Loïc Perrin (36) as their new Sporting Coordinator.

“Under the direction of Jean-François Soucasse, the Executive Chairman, Loïc Perrin will work in close collaboration with Samuel Rustem, Deputy General Manager in charge of sports activities,” explained a club statement. “The man with 470 matches in a Saint-Étienne jersey will be tasked with applying his experience, his perfect knowledge of the club and professional football in the service of Saint-Etienne’s sporting strategy.”

Perrin’s first task will be to aid in choosing a new manager after Puel’s departure, with L’Équipe reporting that former Toulouse and Caen coach Pascal Dupraz is the current front runner for the post.
