The president of the Professional Football League raised his voice, assuring that “nothing is negotiable on this subject”. However, he did not specify any possible sanctions.
In an interview with L’Équipe, Vincent Labrune returned to the controversy over the day against homophobia. Several players had refused to wear the jersey with rainbow flocking. Attitudes that the president of the Professional Football League did not appreciate. Without specifying that they could be the possible sanctions, he assured that he would be in the future intransigent on these behaviors.
«We want to be a modern, lively and open-minded league. For us, the operation “homos, heteros, we all wear the same shirt” was a major success despite the controversy. There are less than 1% of players who refused to wear it. Next season, we will be intransigent on this operation. It is not about politics or religion but about non-discrimination. Nothing is negotiable on this subjectwarns Vincent Labrune.
