The Sports Minister assured on BFM TV that it was the LFP which had decided to stop Ligue 1.
Roxana Maracineanu has put some uncertainty back into the soap opera League 1 because of the health crisis. While she keeps opposing Jean-Michel Aulas on the subject, the Minister of Sports spoke on the sidelines of a trip to Compiègne, referring to the timetable for the resumption of professional football. According to her, it is the FFF and the LFP to manage this, not the government.
“Decisions are taken by the authorities in question. This is what happened to football, assured Roxana Maracineanu on BFM TV. It is not the Ministry of Sports or the government to make the calendar but it is up to us to give a vision, a visibility to the sport which fits more broadly within the constraints that our society has known. In terms of transport, in terms of crossing populations, in terms of containment and the precautions that had to be taken in a known health context. “
To say that it was the LFP and the FFF who decided to stop Ligue 1 is rather confusing, because Premier League, the union of the big clubs, again reminded this week that the decisions had come “Of the highest authorities in the country”. It was indeed the Prime Minister, Edouard Philippe, who first announced that “The season cannot resume”. It was April 28.
