LFP/FFF/Blue… A key day for the French football – Le Parisien

C‘was on a Friday, that is decisive for the French football: the professional League was elected Nathalie Boy de la Tour, for president, first woman to this position. Noël Le Graët, as expected, brig a new mandate at the head of the Federation. And to finish, the Blues have won a victory valuable against Sweden (2-1) on the road to qualification for the World 2018!
. LFP: A woman president !
The 5 October, the professional football League was scheduled to elect its new board of directors and its new president to succeed Frédéric Thiriez, who resigned in April. But the divisions between the 11 “big” clubs in ligue 1 (Paris SG, Lyon, Marseille, etc.) and 9 “small” (G uingamp, Caen, Dijon, etc) had flared up to the big day and the vote could not be held for lack of quorum.
To put an end to this crisis of governance, Nathalie Boy de la Tour, was elected Friday as president of the professional football League for four years, becoming the first woman at the head of the LFP.
Unknown to the general public, this middle-aged blonde is the general delegate of the “FondaCtion du Football”, a body hosted by the Federation, the purpose of which “is to promote civic vision of football”.
Raymond Domenech, the former coach’s controversial, had been proposed earlier in the morning as president, but withdrew after being rejected in the first round of the elective general assembly.
Prior to the election of this president, “big” and “small” clubs of L1 have agreed on a new redistribution of the TV rights and the distribution of seats on the board of directors, or the government of the football pro French.
there were 8 seats to be filled on the board of directors for the clubs of L1 (20 in total). The “big” clubs are represented on the board by the president of Lyon, Jean-Michel Aulas, one of the Paris SG Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, Vadim Vasilyev, vice-president of Monaco and Jean-Pierre Estuary, chairman of Nice.
The “small” clubs are represented on the board by Laurent Nicollin, president delegate of Montpellier, René Ruello, president of Rennes, Jean-Francois Fortin, president de Caen and Bertrand Desplat, president of Guingamp
. FFF: Le Graët y returns
of Course, it was said two years ago that he would not. But at 74 years of age, Noël Le Graët, is the boss’s undisputed French football, far from the strife of the LFP. And its showcase, the team of France, rest on a final of the Euro and has won back the c?urs.
Then the Breton was logically announced his candidacy to stand for a new mandate of four years to the Federation (elected on march 18, 2017). It had gathered to it the families of the round ball in a lounge at the Stade de France a few hours before the kickoff of France-Sweden.
And launched it in his inimitable style: “I hesitated for a very long time, I am 75 years old (he will be on the 25th of December), I know that I do not. I give you my word of honor: I have not shot soft ! Thank you for the applause, it looks a bit like a primary. I leave with the idea of doing four years ago.”
Character the most powerful of French football, and a true political animal, the former mayor of Guingamp should theoretically not be difficult to re-enlist. Its two rivals, the lawyer François Ponthieu, ex-boss of the DNCG, gendarme financier du football, and Jean-Pierre Keyboard, co-founder of the Conseil national des supporters de football (CNSF), do not make the weight.
. Blue: only in the head
The team of France has made an important step towards the qualification to the World cup-2018, beating Sweden at the Stade de France (2-1). The Blues are now alone at the top of their group with 10 points against seven for their opponents in the evening.
Without being flamboyant, the men of Didier Deschamps are taxed through the head of Paul Pogba (58th) and at close-range by Dimitri Payet (65th). They will spend the winter in the warm, despite a last-ditch appointments, devoid of any issue facing the Ivory Coast in a friendly on Tuesday.
The match was preceded by a minute of silence, almost a year to the day after the attacks in Paris and Saint-Denis, which had been 130 deaths on the 13th of November 2015.
