PSG: the national ethics council of the FFF asks Gueye to explain himself


The National Ethics Council of the FFF requires the Senegalese midfielder, who refused to play in Montpellier during the match day.

The day after the support displayed on Twitter by Senegalese President Macky Sall for Idrissa Gueye after his refusal to play in Montpellier last Saturday on the occasion of a Ligue 1 day under the sign of support for the fight against homophobia with a rainbow flocking of jerseys - "His religious convictions must be respected" - the PSG midfielder received a less conciliatory letter.

The National Ethics Council (CNE) of the French Federation has indeed sent him an unequivocal letter because of the gravity of the situation.

As L'Équipe reports, the organization writes: “One of two things, either these assumptions are unfounded and we invite you without delay to express yourself in order to silence these rumours.

For example, we invite you to accompany your message with a photo of you wearing the jersey in question.

Either these rumors are correct.

In this case, we ask you to be aware of the scope of your gesture and the very serious error committed.

The CNE continues: “The fight against the discrimination suffered by the different minorities, whatever they may be, is an essential fight at all times.

Whether it is skin color, religion, sexual orientation, or any other difference, all forms of discrimination are based on the same basis, which is the rejection of others because they are different from the majority.

The FFF organ therefore insists: “By refusing to participate in this collective operation, you are in fact validating discriminatory behavior, the refusal of the other, and not only against the LGBTQI + community.

The impact of football on society and the ability of players to represent a role model for those who admire them gives us all a special responsibility”.

Tuesday evening, it was Abdou Diallo, partner of Gueye in Paris in the Senegalese selection, who had supported him in an Instagram story with a snapshot by his side accompanied by the message: "We all know who you are Idrissa Gueye".

PSG, he had dissociated himself from the attitude of his player on Monday evening.
