Frédéric Thiriez: “Sagnol affair closed”

LFP President Frédéric Thiriez has released a statement announcing that he believes that Willy Sagnol’s African player controversy is over.

He had the following to say:

“After the mea culpa of Willy Sagnol who sincerely acknowledged that his words had hurt, and betrayed his own thought, I consider this matter closed.

However, football still has work to do to fight against racism, violence and all forms of discrimination. This is what we do and continue to do with the support of large organisations who support us in this fight.”
