As if he needed that, Roxana Maracineanu pushed French football a little deeper. Guest of RMC Story this Tuesday morning, the Minister in charge of Sports returned to the incidents of Sunday evening during the match between Olympique Lyonnais and Olympique de Marseille, at the end of the 14th day of the championship. As a reminder, a spectator present in the stands sent a bottle of water in the face of Dimitri Payet, who was about to take a free kick shortly after the kick-off, causing the match to be stopped in a climate wrought up.

Just before going to a meeting with the authorities of the football Place Beauvau in Paris, Roxana Maracineanu made a detour on the set of RMC this Tuesday morning, explaining « not trusting the relationships that clubs establish with their groups of supporters. This is where we must progress because the supporters of a club are part of the professional team and must be considered and treated, including in their excesses, by the club in question ”.

Maracineanu favors « the matches of the France team »
A subject that will logically be treated at the meeting where Gérald Darmanin, the Minister of the Interior, will also visit, given the number of overflows that have occurred on the lawns of Ligue 1 since the start of the season. “We are waiting for French football to come up with proposals”, claimed Roxana Maracineanu. But the former swimmer didn’t stop there.
To express her dissatisfaction with the behavior of some supporters, she clearly announced her preferences in terms of disciplines: « It’s true that every time I go to the stadium as a minister, I happily tell myself that I took my son rather to rugby than to football. It’s such a shame. It’s clear, I prefer the matches of the France team when I can afford to take my children to the matches, not those of the clubs « .
