Several football clubs suspect a family of using their son to obtain shirts. The process: a video of the child claiming to be a supporter and suffering from a serious illness.

Problem, the diseases mentioned vary according to the requests, as do the places of residence supposed, reports RMC.

It was a revelation that had a snowball effect. This Wednesday, May 18, Thomas Félix, communication manager for the Bourg Péronnas football club, posted on Twitter the video (now deleted) of a child thanking a player for giving him his jersey. To obtain it, his parents had contacted the club a few months ago, reports RMC. Their son explained in another video that he had leukemia and had recently left Bourg-en-Bresse.

But the deception will quickly be revealed. In the wake of Thomas Félix’s tweet, the communication manager of the Quevilly-Rouen football club reacts: ” I received the same video from his parents in January, but Lucas had heart disease and was from Rouenhe wrote. There, he is suffering from leukemia and comes from Bourg-en-Bresse… Then follows a cascade of similar testimonies.

Twenty clubs affected

Chambly, Auxerre, Créteil, Boulogne… The list of clubs affected is long. ” About twenty Ligue 1, Ligue 2 and National clubs contacted me and explained to me that they had been victims of the same parents. “, recounted Thomas Félix on his Twitter account, this Thursday, May 19. According to RMC Sport, who spoke with several social network managers of these clubs, the surname was different each time, as was the disease mentioned=11.0pt=black. The child and the parents were always the same.

Thomas Félix puts the blame on the parents: “ The child is clearly instrumentalised. He is forced to invent stories to scratch a few shirts, he told RMC Sport. I launched this call on the networks to stem this phenomenon of scam. It doesn’t only concern these parents, but they have gone very far. The communication manager of Bourg Péronnas indicated that he had asked, followed by other clubs, to recover the jersey offered. If the parents do not cooperate, legal action could be taken.
