The Champions League final at the Stade de France was marred by numerous incidents before the match, which delayed kick-off by almost thirty minutes.

The only thing I can say, from my position as a coach and a football lover, is that these are things that are very regrettable”, confides the coach, who is worried about the image sent back by France internationally: “Due to the importance of this event, it gives an image throughout the world which is far from positive. These are things you don’t want to see because football is stigmatized,” he explains.

Images that “never please”

On Saturday evening, the Champions League final was delayed by around 30 minutes. These new scenes are a continuation of a series of events that have marked the Ligue 1 season. “It can happen in other sports venues too, for different reasons, but it never makes me happy when I see such images”, adds Didier Deschamps.

Since then, the case has taken a political turn. After the match, Gérald Darmanin and the Minister of Sports, Amélie Oudéa-Castéra, charged the English supporters, guilty according to having come in large numbers with fake or without tickets. A version invalidated by the United Kingdom. The UK Prime Minister’s Office said on Monday it was “extremely disappointed” with the way England fans were treated by law enforcement.
