Football Bordeaux – Bordeaux saved, start of revolt in Ligue 2?

The maintenance of the Girondins de Bordeaux in Ligue 2 against the advice of the DNCG continues to cause a lot of ink to flow and to trigger strong reactions.

Initially relegated to National by the DNCG, the Girondins de Bordeaux were finally kept in Ligue 2 after the appeal before the CNOSF and the hearing before the COMEX of the French Football Federation. The episode will have been long and stressful for the supporters of the Girondins de Bordeaux but the outcome was happy with a continuation in Ligue 2. However, the rescue in extremis of the Aquitaine club does not only make people happy. The Villefranche Beaujolais club, which would have moved up to Ligue 2 if Bordeaux had been relegated, said it was scandalized. A statement shared by Pierre Ferracci, the president of Paris FC, who strongly criticized the management of Gérard Lopez at the Girondins de Bordeaux at the microphone of BeInSports.

The management of Gérard Lopez strongly criticized

“At some point, there needs to be sanctions for leaders who break the rules. We can be in Ligue 2 and not sing when filing for bankruptcy. There are historic clubs which have gone down to National, which have not died from it, which have not filed for bankruptcy. Shareholders paid the price. We must not blackmail employment too, we must maintain it whenever we can, there too it is the role of the shareholders. So congratulations to Bordeaux in Ligue 2, it will be great matches, including for Paris FC. That there are no false controversies on this eh, because I immediately see the idea of ​​transforming the Girondins club into a martyr… No, it is in Ligue 2, but it is also necessary that at one given time to those who do not respect the rules by paying a little the price. And it’s not just Villefranche’s request, there are a lot of presidents who think like me.” launched Pierre Ferracci, who is therefore one of the very skeptical leaders after the maintenance of the Girondins de Bordeaux in Ligue 2. And obviously, he is far from being the only one.
