Le Graët, the Minister of Sports claims his head!


The French government has clearly spoken on the future of Noël Le Graët. The Minister of Sports, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, is campaigning for the departure of the president of the French Football Federation.

Will Noël Le Graët resist the controversy? Since his interview given on Sunday to RMC Sports, in which the 1998 world champion Zinedine Zidane is targeted, the president of the French Football Federation is criticized from all sides. Alongside Kylian Mbappé, one of the first to react to the mind-blowing statements of the Breton leader about the former Real Madrid coach, many former French internationals have castigated the boss of French football. But the exit of the boss of 3F went well beyond the world of football alone, since political leaders of all stripes also turned on Noël Le Graët, more than ever discredited by his inappropriate words on “Zizou”, which let us recall- the is announced with insistence on the bench of the French team in the event of the departure of Didier Deschamps, extended until 2026.

“We cannot continue in a situation”

Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, the Minister of Sports of the French government, drove the point home during a press briefing. “What do we do ? What is going on ? I consider that there are different dimensions in the role of a president of a federation. They are all important. There is an essential dimension of representation. I make a statement of bankruptcy, with a freewheeling speech that sometimes falters seriously, repeatedly. This finding shocked us all. It is important that the Comex of the French Football Federation takes full measure of it in a time of exchange that I invite it to have. I think that this dimension of bankruptcy in the representation, the Comex must seize it, express itself and position itself.

The politician calls for the departure of the 81-year-old man, whose current contract expires in 2024. “I don’t pose the equation in those terms. In the function of president, there are several imposed figures and I think that he is deeply flawed with regard to incarnation and representation. It is very problematic. We cannot continue in a situation where there are so many exits from the road, with remarks that hurt and shock. This is unacceptable.”
