Touched by the authenticity and the love that the Green Nation have shown him during his season on loan, Rémy Cabella committed to AS Saint-Étienne last August for a duration of four years with the ambition of winning a European qualification. Objective attained last May! The Verts’ number 7 was the most decisive player after Wahbi Khazri. He scored 8 goals and made 4 assists, he particularly scored the most quickly in Ligue 1 Conforama in the 2018-2019 season (34 seconds) and was elected player of the 2018-2019 season by the Green Nation.
