the boss of the TGV pins the PSG on Twitter after his plane trip to go to Nantes


The managing director of Voyages SNCF (in charge of the TGV in particular) Alain Krakovitch urged PSG to take the train rather than the plane for the purposes of energy sobriety. Especially when the distance allows it, as was the case on Saturday to go to Nantes.

The PSG is called like everyone else to participate in the collective effort, for the good of the planet. At the end of a scorching summer when we were able to measure the consequences of global warming, and while the world of sport is thinking about avenues for energy sobriety, Paris Saint-Germain was pinned on Twitter by Alain Krakovitch, Managing Director of Voyages SNCF, in charge of the TGV in particular.

Alain Krakovitch reacted to a video post by Marco Verratti, showing the Parisian players on board a plane for Nantes, where PSG played Saturday evening for the sixth day of Ligue 1 (3-0).

SNCF offers a fully privatized TGV

« Paris-Nantes is in less than two hours by TGV, I re-re-renew our proposal for a TGV offer adapted to your specific needs, for our common interests: safety, speed, services and eco-mobility », a-t- He suggests.

This is a question that has come up at regular intervals in recent years. Why do the most powerful football clubs, with the means at their disposal, continue to favor the plane over a less polluting alternative on journeys as short as Paris-Nantes, while the bus sometimes travels empty to collect the players and bring them to the stadium?

The answer given is often the same: the journey is faster, easier to organize, more practical in short. More secure too, since the staff and the players board alone. The plane also allows you to leave as soon as the match is over. Recently, the SNCF has proposed to privatize an entire TGV, a train that it claims to be capable of bringing to almost anywhere in France, with a more than reasonable organization time. The fact remains that the clubs are still just as reluctant, for several reasons (organizational cost, comfort, etc.), despite the controversies aroused by these increasingly criticized practices.
