Eager to defend himself, the 81-year-old Breton pointed to the actions of the Minister of Sports, Amélie Oudéa-Castera. According to Noël Le Graët, there have been “a lot of political interference and pressure” for justice to open an investigation on him, what he learned “through the press”much to his astonishment.

The Minister of Sports replied curtly to the former leader, in remarks relayed by RMC Sports : “The statements I made last week concerned the established bankruptcy of Noël Le Graët in his function of representing the Federation, I assume them and maintain them. (…) Noël Le Graët is a litigant like any other. He is free to organize his defense as he wishes, but his attempts at diversion will not fool anyone. I will not allow myself to be questioned.”

Interviewed by the newspaper The Team on this affair, the president of OL, Jean-Michel Aulas, expressed his deep concern: “So I try to be careful. I saw the Christmas press release (Le Graët) which maintains its positions… It’s worrying, but I’m also perplexed. There is a terrible distortion between what is said on one side and what Noel answers. I have to be able to talk to him.”

Despite everything, Jean-Michel Aulas does not call for a resignation from the FFF of Noël Le Graët: “It is premature to take a position. The report from the Ministry of Sports has not been released. (…) Resignation ? It is a possibility. But as things stand, I think it’s premature to say. (…) I’m not saying that we shouldn’t get there. But today, in view of what Noël (Le Graët) represents as a man and leader, it would be to go quickly.

The vice tightens furiously around Noël Le Graët, accused by various testimonies of sexual and moral harassment, in addition to having covered sexual assaults on minors, accusations formulated by articles by journalist Romain Molina, for Josimarwhich justice has not relayed, for the moment.
