Rothen demands respect for Antonetti
Launched in a fine defense by Frédéric Antonetti, Jérôme Rothen insisted on the fact that he preferred a boiling coach like the Metz coach rather than overly sanitized people who do not say what they really think. In the show Rothen ignites on RMC, the former PSG midfielder asked that we not forget what Antonetti had brought to French football.
“Jocelyn Gourvennec at a press conference, don’t tell me he didn’t see the altercation because the whole stadium saw it. And well, Jocelyn Gourvennec, he didn’t see it and said that he was focused on the match. We prefer that he not give his opinion when he thinks no less than to give his opinion even if it means being criticized? Knowing Antonetti a little, I think that he and his assistant must have said to themselves that he should perhaps not have reacted like that with Sylvain Armand and that he will accept the sanction, estimated Jérôme Rothen. But that one stops telling me that he must be condemned because this coach is completely crazy. Respect him already. In relation to his age, in relation to what he has brought to French football, in relation to his perpetual questioning. When we hold several clubs like he did it by obtaining good results, it is that there is a big questioning. I am for him and I do not want to put all the coaches s French in the same box. There are enough to have guys trained in the same way and who all react with a nice suit to never say a word higher than the other. Antonetti, we know what he thinks.”
Rothen defends Antonetti after his outburst against Lille
Expelled during the trip from Metz to Lille for an overly vehement reaction, Frédéric Antonetti received the support of Jérôme Rothen on Monday. The RMC Sport consultant wanted to salute the position of the Messin coach who remained straight in his boots and defended his club.
“He considers himself to be the victim of an injustice? But he is. It’s not that he considers himself to be a victim, he is. I saw the videos, we saw what is happening, how Olivier Létang and Sylvain Armand come to put pressure on the fourth referee. He is next to all that, and he reacts when he sees it, said the former PSG player in the show Rothen ignites on RMC. He He still has the right to react, right? He has two managers from a big club who have no business there and who put pressure on the fourth referee when there are five minutes left. As he said, some coaches would lower their heads before sitting on their bench. But he has that personality. We’re not going to blame him for reacting.”
Nantes-PSG: Valbuena pays Leonardo and Verratti after their exit against arbitration
Present in Rothen ignites, this Monday on RMC, the former attacking midfielder of OM, OL and the Blues Mathieu Valbuena reacted to the comments of Leonardo and Marco Verratti on arbitration after Nantes-PSG.
“PSG came across a big Nantes team who deserved their victory, and I would have liked that at the end of the match, Leonardo like Verratti said it – even if they said it a little. Mistakes, Mr. Lesage did, there is no problem, believes the Olympiacos player. On Mbappé’s penalty, there must be a second yellow and therefore red. There is also the story of additional time … But Verratti has to stop talking like that at some point. He just talks on the pitch. I have nothing against him, he’s a great player, but when PSG had advantages, getting a penalty against Lyon for example, there is in the end a balance. You lose, you are silent, and you question yourself. I find it small. (…) There was a defeat, fully deserved. I would have liked that the players and Leonardo made themselves small. That’s what I blame for this kind of outing. Yes, the referee made mistakes, but PSG also had an advantage in previous matches. And we don’t didn’t hear the Parisians.”
