Montpellier-PSG (0-4): Idrissa Gueye, the absence that challenges


Present in the group that traveled to Hérault, the Senegalese did not appear on the match sheet. An absence "for personal reasons

Idrissa Gueye did not participate in PSG's victory on the lawn of Montpellier this Saturday evening (4-0).

The Senegalese midfielder was however in the group announced this Saturday morning by the club and which traveled to the Hérault.

Asked about the reason for this absence at the press conference, Mauricio Pochettino said: “Idrissa made the trip to Montpellier, but for personal reasons he had to leave the match sheet.

But he wasn't hurt."

The Argentine coach will say no more.

But the question arises: did Idrissa Gueye voluntarily refuse to play so as not to wear a jersey whose rainbow flocking, for all Ligue 1 players, was a symbol of the fight against homophobia? and rights of the LGBTQIA+ community?

Since 2019, Ligue 1 has implemented this system as May 17 approaches, World Day Against Homophobia.

👕 As part of World Day Against Homophobia on May 17, #Ligue1 is mobilizing.

The Parisian jerseys take up the rainbow flag, symbol of peace, diversity and symbol par excellence of the LGBT movement.#MHSCPSG

And for the second year in a row, Idrissa Gueye was not present on the match sheet on this occasion.

Last year, against Reims, the African champion withdrew due to "gastroenteritis", a few hours before the meeting.

Raising the same questions.

At the time, his entourage denied any intention of boycott on the part of the midfielder.
