1. Aurlien Tchouamni – These acts must not go unpunished. There will be buzz for a day or two, then we will continue until the next one. Taking a stand against racism is easy, taking action is something else. (…) Yesterday, our cam club was in the field and captured everything. It was loud and clear. We have heard it. It is our turn to be heard. Racism does not belong to football, nor any other place for that matter. Diversity is the most precious thing we have in this world and it makes it beautiful.

2. Philip Holzer – Just look at the transfer market this summer. You can clearly see that Covid-19 is hitting ‘traditional’ clubs much harder. Who is the spending peak? RB Leipzig, but they also brought in some money. And then Paris Saint-Germain directly. It’s an evolution that I don’t like at all. In my opinion, PSG is the club that many would least like to see win the Champions League. (Frankfurter Rundschau, le 03/08/2021)

The joke (however real) of the former defender of Manchester United concerning the French compared to the attitude of Harry Kane, who would have schemed the recovery to force his departure from Tottenham.
5. Jrme Alonzo – Respect for a player who in two seasons brought you to the final and then to the semi-finals of the Champions League, who has led a sick locker room, who has the support of everyone, who is a guide, a pride , which has a solar side which reflects on the team … If Donnarumma had been ready two years, there would have been no debate. But l… I do not endorse, but then not at all! Honestly, it is disrespect for a manager and a guard who gave you everything, everything. Because I insist: factually, Keylor Navas changed the size of the club. And you thank him by putting a future phenomenon in his paws? I am very, very angry for him. has made me crazy. When is my club going to learn from its mistakes and grow? (La Chane L’Equipe, 08/01/2021)

6. Olivier Giroud – I am still very motivated, and if you have to, your body can only follow. It’s all about the mind, and that’s what makes you understand how far you can go with your physique. Ibrahimovic, who is a little older, will be able to testify to this. Signing here is not revenge on the critics. But I want to keep giving my best for Milan and football. I can say that Papy Giroud is still there (Press conference, 08/01/2021)

The former defender of Olympique de Marseille obviously believes a great season for the club phocen. He is perhaps not the most objective on the subject …
9. Jean-Pierre Caillot, about El Bilal Tour – There are players who had exit vouchers, there are some who have exit vouchers, he does not. For six months, there had already been very high demands on him, it was explained to him that he had to do a full year before leaving. So, in this case, the only advice I gave El Bilal is that he get back very quickly in the direction of travel, that he has a good season and next year, we can evoke a departure. Either way, he won’t be leaving this year. And if he wants to go to Pro 2 or stay at home, this is what will happen to him for the whole year (France Bleu Champagne, 08/01/2021)
