L’Equipe: The chairman of the French Football Association still denies the sexual harassment accusation his daughter advises him to retire, or the net will be broken
February 26 According to the latest reports from the French media L’Equipe reporters Arnaud Hermant and Etienne Moatti, since February 15
People have been looking forward to this since the release of the final investigation report of the Japanese sports ministry on the management of the French Football Federation.
This was especially critical of Noël Le Graët, whose management was seen as authoritarian and accused of sexual and moral harassment.
The president of the French Football Federation, who has been suspended since January 11, will resume his duties on Tuesday during the conclusion of the audit organized by the executive committee, and he should announce his resignation on this occasion.
That was the message he sent to relatives and several Football Association officials in recent hours.
If the situation doesn’t improve in any way, he should be officially dismissed within two days.
Noël Le Graët finally understood that he couldn’t stand the accusations flooding against him, the scandals he was fighting against that he didn’t want to admit.
Within the FFF’s executive committee, its last supporters have all but disappeared among those who agreed to be on its list in the previous March 2021 presidential election (which it won with 73 percent of the vote).
He himself is very reluctant to resign, because he believes that his “innocence” over the past few decades, and such achievements in French sports, should not be obliterated.
His team, especially his daughters, urged him to retire to protect his family, but also his career, as the whole affair could tarnish the image he left behind.
If he does not resign on Tuesday, Le Graët will be threatened by FIFA’s disciplinary committee, while a dismissal meeting is likely to be called and likely to vote for his departure.
Of course, considering the “bull” character of the Frenchman Noël Le Graët, L’Equipe does not rule out that he will have his last battle of the trapped beast next Tuesday.
