"The minister has gone on a crusade": Le Graët's lawyer cries foul and attacks Oudéa-Castéra


In an interview with L'Équipe, one of the two lawyers for the president of the FFF defends his client and questions the behavior of the Minister of Sports regarding the audit.

A new episode every day.

This Friday, Thierry Marembert, one of Noël Le Graët's two lawyers, came out of silence for the first time in the team.

And his counter-attack targets the Minister of Sports, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra who is, in his eyes, "

completely out of his role

" about the audit of the FFF which severely pinpoints the president of the FFF.

The lawyer also returns to the merits of the case, with the accusations of moral and sexual harassment against his client.

And retorts vigorously.


Very serious charges have been laid,"

he said.

But in reality, when you read the report, there is nothing in it.

There are punchlines to make the headlines.

But behind it, there are no facts.

The accusations of a sexual nature against Noël Le Graët represent half a page, a few lines no more than forty.

Obviously, the inspectors received an injunction to charge him.

The minister, the morning you (L'Equipe) publish the interview with Sonia Souid, says "our audit will be worthy of it"... It's scandalous.

Relaunched on the various SMS of a sexual nature that Noël Le Graët would have sent to certain employees, the lawyer sweeps this subject out of hand.


The most serious text that the inspectors remembered was 'Good evening without me!' Who said that?

Is this the person who received this message?

We don't know, there is no date.

My client categorically denies any inappropriate behavior that would be criminally reprehensible.

On the relationship between Florence Hardouin and Noël Le Graët

On Florence Hardouin's attacks on the president of the FFF, Thierry Marembert brings another version: "

She never spoke about it to the former HRD of the Federation who left in 2021. Ms. Hardouin's strategy falls opportunely , at a time when she is very threatened in her job, in her career and her remuneration.

For your information, Mrs. Hardouin invited the president to dinner just before the World Cup.

The president invited her to Qatar and they had dinner several times together with other people.

But she has been morally and sexually harassed for years... I think you have to be serious for five minutes


Finally the lawyer Thierry Marembert, wonders about the position and the attitude of Amélie Oudéa-Castéra who wishes, without saying it openly, the resignation of Noël Le Graët.

Ministers must absolutely not intervene and must not receive a progress note.

She received one and she said so.

The minister went on a crusade on bad ground against someone who did not deserve it.

Everyone in life must keep a sense of proportion.
