Absent for “personal reasons” on the lawn of the MHSC on Saturday, when he was not injured and well in the group for the match, the Senegal midfielder would have decided to boycott the 37th day of Ligue 1 because of the jerseys with rainbow flocking on the day against homophobia. On Twitter by President Macky Sall gave his support to the Senegalese International – “His religious convictions must be respected”. Which is not to the taste of the French federation which sent a less conciliatory letter to the PSG midfielder. The National Ethics Council (CNE) of the French Federation has indeed sent him an unequivocal letter because of the gravity of the situation. As L’Équipe reports, the organization writes: “One of two things, either these assumptions are unfounded and we invite you without delay to express yourself in order to silence these rumours. For example, we invite you to accompany your message with a photo of you wearing the jersey in question. 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. Warning The CNE continues: “The fight against discrimination suffered by the different minorities, whatever they may be, is an essential and constant fight. Whether it is skin color, religion, sexual orientation, or any other difference, all forms of discrimination are based on the same basis, which is the rejection of others because they are different from the majority. Discrimination The body of the FFF therefore insists: “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 impact of football on society and the ability of players to represent a role model for those who admire them gives us all a special responsibility”.
