Interviewed by Le Figaro and Sport24, Noël Le Graët returns in particular to the stopping of Ligue 1. A decision now criticized by many club presidents ... "Why did they vote to stop the championship, then?" I haven't seen many of them take up the niche on this theme, ”squeaks the boss of the French Football Federation (FFF). Relaunched on the words of Gérard Lopez, president of LOSC, Mr. Le Graët pulls out his claws: “Ah yes, the finance acrobat (smile). Everyone can say today that we could have played. Do games like the Germans behind closed doors? It does not interest me. We will be ready to start the season well, it was the wisest decision. We had to respect the Prime Minister's decisions. The governments decide, it's written in the UEFA regulations. It is as if the executive had forbidden the restaurants to open and the restaurateurs would have retorted: "We open anyway." We applied what seemed logical to me in relation to the state and the opinion of scientists. ” Noël Le Graët, 78, has been at the head of the FFF since 2011. He has not yet decided if he will run again in March 2021.
