Football : For Le Graët, racism “does not exist or hardly exists” in sport

Football :

Asked to comment on the stormy PSG-OM on Sunday, on BFM Business, Noël Le Graët recalled that there was “little or no” racism in the stadiums.

Noël Le Graët also reacted to the huge controversy. The president of the FFF obviously does not know if Alvaro Gonzalez uttered a racist insult against Neymar, as claimed by the Brazilian, during the Classic won by OM on the ground of PSG (0-1), last Sunday. As a reminder, the images of Téléfoot, the broadcaster of the meeting, did not detect the words denounced by the Brazilian crack of the Parisian club.

“In a match, there can be gaps. But we are less than 1% difficulty today. When a black scores a goal, the whole stadium is standing. The racist phenomenon in sport, and in football in particular, does not exist or hardly exists, ”recalls the 78-year-old Breton, who leaves the disciplinary commission of the LFP to clarify this dark story.

“NLG” regrets the unworthy spectacle offered during this Classic anyway, with a final general altercation which resulted in 5 exclusions, including that of Neymar. “It’s a poster that all of France is waiting for. It went badly. The behavior of the players was not exemplary. We deplore it. Too bad. They did not know how to keep their calm, nor give the show we expected, ”analyzes the boss of the French boss.
