Homophobia: supported by Macky Sall, Idrissa Gueye ordered to explain himself by the FFF

-

Published on: 05/18/2022 – 14:58 Supported in Senegal but highly criticized in France, the PSG player was summoned on Wednesday to explain himself for his supposed refusal to join an action against homophobia by the Ethics Committee of the French Football Federation (FFF). Idrissa Gana Gueye still in turmoil. The international midfielder, player at PSG, is strongly suspected of having withdrawn for not wearing the flocked jersey in the colors of the LGBT pride rainbow during the May 14 match against Montpellier. If the associations criticize him in France, he received the support of the President of Senegal in person, Macky Sall. On Wednesday May 18, he received a summons from the National Ethics Council (CNE) of the French Football Federation (FFF ), a body which nevertheless has no disciplinary power. “One of two things, either these assumptions are unfounded and we invite you without delay to speak out in order to silence these rumours”, writes the CNE to him in a letter consulted Wednesday by AFP. “Either these rumors are correct. In this case, we ask you to be aware of the scope of your gesture and the very serious error committed”, continues the letter signed Patrick Anton, president of the CNE, revealed by L’Équipe. CNE, for example, suggests that Gana Gueye “accompany” her answer “with a photo of you wearing the shirt in question”. “You are in fact validating discriminatory behavior” Saturday during the 37th day of Ligue 1, professional football (LFP) organized an operation entitled “Gays or heterosexuals, we all wear the same jersey” where the numbers of L1 and L2 players were painted in rainbows. Gueye did not play and was not injured, said PSG coach Mauricio Pochettino that evening. “This absence (…) is widely interpreted as a refusal to participate in this operation of awareness and the fight against discrimination”, writes the CNE. “By refusing to participate in this collective operation, you are in fact validating discriminatory behavior, the refusal of the other, and not only against the LGBTQI + community.” The National Ethics Council (CNE) of the FFF wrote to Idrissa Gueye: “By refusing to participate in this collective operation, you are in fact validating discriminatory behavior, the refusal of the other, and not only against the LGBTQI + community” , writes the CNE.(@lequipe) pic.twitter.com/DmsNtOUG56— Instant Foot ⚽️ (@lnstantFoot) May 18, 2022 The Ethics Council concludes its message to the African champion hoping “that this mail will make you become aware of the need to clarify your situation or to make amends, as the case may be. ” Contacted by AFP, the player’s entourage said that Gana Gueye would soon speak about this controversy. PSG, for its part, remained discreet, recalling the club’s “long-standing commitment to the fight against homophobia and discrimination”. From a source close to the locker room, we only mention an individual choice of the player. It seems difficult to imagine that the club sanctions the player, because the PSG could then find itself in a complex legal situation with regard to labor law. The support of the president of Macky SallIn 2021 already, Gana Gueye had not played the match of the day devoted to the fight against homophobia organized by the LFP. He had mentioned gastroenteritis. “He had already done it last year. There is little doubt about his intentions,” Bertrand Lambert, president of Panam Boyz and Girlz United, told AFP. open to diversity. In Senegal, the case also has a lot of echo, but the general tone of the judgments differs. Gueye and his colleagues in the selection, African champions in February for the first time in the country’s history, are adored, and many supporters of the PSG player have been posted on social networks. The Senegalese president himself, Macky Sall, supported the “Lion” in a tweet: “I support Idrissa Gana Gueye. His religious convictions must be respected.” In this 95% Muslim country and very practicing, homosexuality, punishable by a sentence of one to five years in prison, is widely considered as deviance. In the name of the principle of free belief and respect for differences, I support Gana Gueye. What does Ms. Valérie Pecresse use to ask for sanctions against the Senegalese professional? Sport must unite, and for this, divisive subjects must be avoided. pic.twitter.com/Oj3V3QsaGS— El Hamidou KASSE (@elhadjkasse) May 16, 2022 Writer El Hamidou Kassé said on Twitter that he supports Gueye “in the name of the principle of free belief and respect for differences. The movement” It’s fed up”, active in particular in the defense of democracy, “vigorously denounces this demonization of which he (Gueye) is a victim”, in a press release. He calls “the Ministry of Sports and the Senegalese Football Federation to provide official support to Gana in these difficult times”. With AFP
