While the Executive Committee of the French Football Federation met urgently last Wednesday to decide on the withdrawal of Noël Le Graët from his position as president of the FFF in favor of Philippe Diallo, the vice-president of the instance, a new one has come to tarnish, if it was still possible, the image of the 81-year-old man. Indeed, the inspectors in charge of the audit commissioned by the Ministry of Sports concerning the governance of the FFF reported to the public prosecutor of Paris, facts likely to be criminally reprehensible on the part of the boss of the instance, according to the latest indiscretions of our colleagues from World.
After these new revelations, Noël Le Graët was surprised by the leaks and the disclosure of this latest information. “I have just read with astonishment an article in Le Monde reporting leaks on the provisional report being prepared. At this stage, I know neither the facts of which I am accused nor the people who are behind them. The article mentions a qualification of sexist contempt which is an offense liable to be punished with a maximum fine of €750. (…) I am surprised that information can be disclosed even though the interim report has not yet been sent to me and I have not been able to submit my observations on it” notably entrusted the president of the FFF.
