Le Graët accused by Sonia Souid: the Minister of Sports comes to the support of the agent


Agent Sonia Souid revealed on Monday that she suffered practices close to harassment between 2013 and 2017 from President Noël Le Graët

Speech is released.

After the testimonies of former employees collected this fall by the magazine So Foot and by France Info, it is the turn of the influential football agent Sonia Souid to publicly accuse Noël Le Graët.

According to her, the boss of the FFF since 2011 abused his power via SMS then during a meeting at the hotel during which he would have behaved more than inappropriate.

“From the moment my president made me understand that to make my ideas a reality, I had to take a walk in his bed… It's a shock to understand that.

It's a very delicate situation.

At one point, I wanted to stop, ”says Sonia Souid (37) in the newspaper L’Équipe.

An interview that follows an interview conducted on BFMTV and broadcast on Monday evening.

“Congratulations Sonia Souid for the courage of your testimony.

Our audit will be worthy of it.

See you very soon, “said Amélie Oudéa-Castéra.

Audit on everyone's mind

The Minister of Sports multiplies the charges against the 81-year-old leader.

This Monday, the day after the "Zidane gate", she called on the Executive Committee of the FFF to dissociate itself from NLG and promised to help them dismiss it via the conclusions of the audit underway since September.

“The Comex will have material on the behavior of the president.

We are at a critical moment for the future of this Federation,” she said.

Congratulations Sonia Souid for the courage of your testimony.

Our audit will be worthy of it.

See you soon.

Even if it should be remembered that at the base, the audit commissioned by the ministry does not target a particular leader but the overall management of the FFF, the testimony of Sonia Souid comes to weigh down the file of the Breton Menhir.

“We're talking about someone who has no doubts… He's the king and the Federation is his kingdom.

He does not reflect in his advances.

He is not afraid of anything or anyone.

He thinks he's untouchable.

It certainly is.

He has surely forgotten everything he told me now…”, deplores Sonia Souid.

According to the latter, other women could soon take the floor.

“There is one waiting for me to speak.

There has to be one first.

Noël Le Graët has always denied the accusations of harassment.

This Tuesday, he will be heard again by the inspectors.

According to France Info, the first salvo of testimonies from former employees reports a repetition of inappropriate behavior (untimely calls, “indecent” proposal, “boorish” and “insistent” attitude).

On the other hand, nothing seems to fall under the law and require the activation of article 40 (reporting to the prosecution).

The conclusions must be made mid-February at the latest.
