"I'll be short, these are unacceptable and intolerable things simply," said Didier Deschamps. The coach of the Blues was questioned on Monday on the ethnic registration of young players in a PSG recruitment cell, between 2013 and spring 2018. This case was revealed Thursday by a group of European media, including Mediapart and " Correspondent ".
Pointed by the Football Leaks for using ethnic criteria such as "French", "Maghrebi", "West Indians", "African", on recruitment cards, the PSG launched an internal investigation and promised to "share the results "in the coming days.
This Monday on RTL, the Minister of Sport, Roxana Maracineanu, said "very angry" about it. In search of answers, the State will receive this week the leaders of the PSG. Marlène Schiappa, Secretary of State for Equality between Women and Men, the Minister of Sports, will meet in particular Jean-Claude Blanc, general manager of the Parisian club.
Paris denounced a "personal initiative" of Marc Westerloppe – former head of recruitment outside Île-de-France – who left the club at the beginning of the year to join Rennes.
