The intervention of Edouard Philippe at the National Assembly was expected yesterday by the French people but also by the actors and lovers of the ball. Unsurprisingly, the Prime Minister has killed the suspense and the current season, suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, will not resume its rights. The Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 championships are thus over, as confirmed by the boss of the FFF, Noël Le Graët. While waiting to see which decisions will be taken concerning the allocation of European places or relegations and promotions, several presidents, like Jean-Michel Aulas (OL) or Jean-Pierre Rivière (OGC Nice), reacted to this decision and still hope to be able to make a difference. Which has the gift of irritating Christophe Dugarry, who made it known on the airwaves of RMC this Wednesday.
“Football goes on its head, its leaders too. It becomes pathetic. I think people have other concerns than hearing this nonsense … What they did not understand in the intervention of the Prime Minister, who, in my opinion, was a little premature ? It's finish ! The match is over, the extra time has been played, the penalty shootout has been played, the players are showering in the locker room and they are still looking for solutions? But after a while, let's stop! It's ridiculous, pathetic, it hurts football. It's horrible … There is a regulation. There will be votes. And the decision will be made by majority. Final point. As if by chance, when a president has an idea, it is favorable to his club. How do you take your supporters and people for fools? They're supposed to be great club and industry leaders, how do they get things out of this? How can they speak of solidarity when everyone is only thinking about their little merry-go-round? ” This is what is said for the 1998 world champion.
