French football federation president Noël Le Grae, who was at the center of controversy over his country’s legend Zinedine Zidane’s ignoring remarks, eventually stepped down from his position.
The French Football Federation (FFF) announced the resignation of Le Grae through its official website on the 11th (Korean time). FFF said, “The FFF executive committee, after holding a special meeting at the headquarters on the 11th, has decided to resign from the post of chairman,” and added, “FFF Vice-Chairman Filipe Diallo will assume the interim chairmanship as of today.”
Recently, Le Grae has been hit by public opinion for remarks that seem to disregard Zidane, the national legend.
As Didier Deschamps, who led the French team to second place at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, signed a contract extension until 2026, speculative reports emerged that Zidane, who was a candidate for the next manager, would go to the Brazilian national team. 바카라
In response, Le Grae said: “Zidane as a Brazilian manager? I don’t know. It would be surprising. Zidane can do what he wants, and that’s none of my business. I’ve never met Zidane, and breaking up with Deschamps is none of my business. I didn’t even think about it,” he said.
He was fine up to this point, but the next remark was a problem. Le Grae said, “Contrary to media reports, Zidane didn’t even contact me. Even if I did, I wouldn’t have received it either.” It would be good,” he said, causing controversy.
