"It's very shocking, it goes too far" Noël Le Graët wrote to the president of the Argentine federation


The president of the FFF wrote to his Argentinian counterpart to complain about the racist insults to which certain players of the team are victims.

Voices are raised in France to denounce and demand accountability.

Since the World Cup final won last Sunday by Argentina at the end of the penalty shootout (4-2, 3-3 ap), some players of the France team are, in fact, victims of racist insults and provocations from Albiceleste supporters.

Kylian Mbappé has been targeted several times by Argentinian goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez.

The latter, after asking for a minute's silence for the PSG striker in the locker room at the end of the match, did it again during the celebrations by brandishing a doll bearing the image of Bondy's crack.

“I wrote to my counterpart from the Argentine Federation, I find these excesses abnormal, in the context of a sports competition, and I find it difficult to understand, explains Noël Le Graët in an interview with Ouest-France.

This is going too far.

Mbappé's behavior was exemplary.


Randal Kolo Muani and Aurélien Tchouaméni were forced to close the comments on their Instagram account.

Le Graët indicated that the FFF had lodged a complaint against the authors of the racist insults.

“We have launched various procedures.

It's very shocking.

These are boys who gave their best for the France team to succeed.

It is important that we support them.


After the world champion and Trojan defender Adil Rami, other personalities denounced this Thursday the actions of the Argentine goalkeeper.

“We stigmatize the Argentines but we are dealing with a moron.

The fact that he is Argentinian is a detail, said Mourad Boudjellal, former president of the Toulon rugby club, in the program Les Grandes Gueules on RMC.

Me in rugby, I had Argentinian players and they have a lot of class.

Fifa must intervene by making this moron face up to his responsibilities.

Guest of the Morning of CNEWS this Wednesday, Karl Olive, deputy Renaissance of Yvelines, said he was scandalized.

“This goalkeeper is completely stuffed, criticized the president of the Variété Club de France.

When I see the obscene way he held up his trophy as the tournament's best goalkeeper, I wish FIFA would take it away from him.

Showing a brocaded doll or this wooden box with the photo of Kylian Mbappé is unbearable.
