With each passing day, the noose tightens a little more around Noël Le Graët.
After his inappropriate statements to Zinédine Zidane on Sunday, the president of the FFF sees his position weakened again after the edifying testimony of agent Sonia Souid this Tuesday at
Chance of the calendar, the boss of French football is heard during the day as part of the audit carried out by the Ministry of Sports to clarify in particular the managerial practices of 3F.
It is no longer a secret, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, at the initiative of the audit whose conclusions are expected in mid-February, wants the head of the 81-year-old Breton leader.

Resignation or revolution of the comex
Noël Le Graët may see his adventure end in the event of a revolution within the executive committee of the French Football Federation.
, some members, and not the least, namely Jean-Michel Aulas the president of Olympique Lyonnais and Philippe Diallo, vice-president of the FFF, would like to convince the Breton leader to convene an extraordinary Comex.
With the desire to see the former PS Mayor of Guingamp explain his comments regarding Zinedine Zidane, his attitude towards players' agent Sonia Souid and also his management of Didier Deschamps' contract extension until in 2026, for which he did not keep his executive committee informed.
As a reminder, in the event of the resignation of "NLG", the vice-president of the FFF, Philippe Diallo, close to Florence Hardouin, general manager of the federation in cold weather with his superior, would become the interim president before the appointment of a candidate. within the executive committee.
Who resides in this famous executive committee?
They are eleven men and three women, as stipulated by the regulations.
Noël Le Graët (president), Philippe Diallo (vice-president), Laura Georges (general secretary, former international), Aline Riera (general treasurer, former international), Jean-Michel Aulas (president OL), Eric Borghini (president Ligue Méditerranée ), Albert Gemmrich (president of the Grand Est League), Helène Schrub (DG FC Metz), Marc Keller (president of RC Strasbourg), Philippe Lafrique (in charge of relations with the districts and the development of futsal), Pascal Parent (president of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes League), Jamel Sandjak (president of the Paris-Ile de France League).
To which must be added Vincent Labrune, president of the Professional Football League, and Vincent Nolorgues, president of the Amateur Football League.

In this case, a vote would be put in place and could put Noël Le Graët in the minority.
This option, not impossible in view of the turn of recent events, would force the boss of French football to appear before an extraordinary GA and would call into question his mandate as president.
