"We wish him good luck."
Meanwhile, Zoumana Camara has revealed he has made up his mind to leave St Etienne.
The former Leeds defender is being chased by Paris Saint Germain and Camara is keen to make the move to the French capital.
"When I take a decision, I don't change my mind" Camara told Le Progres. "I want to leave for sure.
"I know myself, nobody can oblige me to play. I have nothing against [coach] Laurent Roussey but I am not 20 years of age and I can't start a new project and wait for the coach to be replaced at the end of the season, like it is always the case with St Etienne.
"It is the same situation for so many years."
