Chairman of the French football federation against the strike of a club for homophobic statements

Noël Le Graët, and the president of the French football federation, that there has to be just is to play football for homophobic statements is in the box. He did not accept that the club will now be closed down.

This season referees will be in a race with homophobic placards, or spreekkoren. So FC Metz-Paris Saint-Gemain was recently shut down after the thuisfans banners, with the homophobic lyrics in all its forms.

“I could be the games will never stop, and I’m absolutely against it. I just hope that the referees will listen to me,” said the 77-year-old Le Graët on Tuesday in a radio interview.

“Football is for everyone, from all social classes. We do not need to be held hostage by homophobia. It’s not good to have a game for that reason have to stop. I would only stop to racism, or due to security reasons.”

Le Graët and had already let me know that he thought that the matches in France, to be quickly shut down. That aroused a scandal for the French minister of Sport, and that is correct for the new measure.

“We are sure that homophobia will disappear’

The French voetbalbaas said in his radio interview, however, to know that he has to address homophobia in football will eradicate in a different way than in the absence of competition.

“I won’t accept it, that people who think that way are homophobic it is. We will have to make sure that it goes away, but in the end of the race is on to something else.”
