Yeah, being benched was something he was not satisfied with. Apparently, he gave his opinion to journalists, instead of directly talking about it with the coach. The coach didn't appreciate. Then he left Saint-Etienne.
So, it was not really a love story between him and ASSE.
But in fact, it cannot be denied that he performed well during those 5 games he played. And that's probably the reason why he didn't understand why he was so often sitting on the bench (or even playing with the B squad).
I think you guys made a good sign, I hope he succeeds quickly and sustainably in Turkey.
Teams I like:
Slovan Bratislava (Slovakia), Peñarol (Uruguay), Chicago Fire (USA), Volgar Gazprom Astrakhan (Russia), Vannes (France), Dundee FC (Scotland), Arsenal (England) and Hammarby (Sweden).
