ASSE said Saturday that M’Baye Niang’s broadcast would not go ahead due to the intervention of multiple agents. The behavior of the attacker would have urged Claude Puel to withdraw from this file.
M’Baye Niang will finally stay in Rennes this season. “Today I’m coming back to the Stade Rennais, I’ll win everyone back. M’Baye will take his place again, ”the striker said in an interview with L’Equipe on Monday. Nevertheless, the Senegalese international was ready to join ASSE as a wild card. According to reports, Niang even had his medical exam and was about to sign his contract. To everyone’s surprise, the Saint-Etienne club announced that Saturday that this transfer would not take place. “AS Saint-Étienne has decided to stop recruiting M’Baye Niang. However, an agreement had been reached with Stade Rennais and the player. However, the intervention of multiple agents made it impossible to complete the operation. “
Claude Puel upset about Niang’s behavior?
However, the reason given by ASSE in its press release would not be the only one that could justify this decision. According to information from But Football Club, the Saint Etienne Club was “scalded” by the behavior of M’Baye Niang. Indeed, the Rennes striker would have been late for the medical exam but would also have left his hotel without notifying ASSE. A behavior that would have struck Claude Puel deeply, linked to the state of mind. The player was still supposed to sign his contract with the Saint-Etienne team this Saturday, but Niang would have been late either. The drop of water that broke the camel’s back. The ASSE technician would have put an end to this file after this malfunction. Especially since the player was not 100% on the physical level and had to wait a few weeks before regaining optimal form.
