Didier Digard’s rant about Ramadan in French football


As explained on our site in recent hours, the FFF refuses to interrupt matches to allow Muslim players to break their Ramadan fast. An email was even sent to the referees to this effect. A decision that is causing a stir in France, while the Premier League or the Bundesliga have chosen to interrupt the meetings so that the Muslims on the ground can break their fast. This does not pass with Didier Digard, who made it known this Friday, at a press conference. ” This year, the schedules do not encroach on the matches. We looked at the calendar, these will be matches at 9 p.m., so the fast will already be broken “, first recalled the coach of OGC Nice.

I don’t have a position on these things, it’s always complicated. We are in a secular country, not in a Muslim country. These are always delicate subjects. We know England. We must admit things, they are more open than us on the subject and it has always been (the case). Now, it would be nice if France did. I don’t think it’s a problem for anyone that they don’t do it, because we know that from the moment we’re not in a Muslim country, we can’t expect to have things as a result. You have to accept the country where you live “, concluded Digard, philosopher.
