politicians pinned for having forgotten Tchouaméni in their congratulations to the Blues

by admin

The Blues are on their way to the semi-finals of the Football World Cup after their victory on Saturday evening against England (2-1). Anonymous and personalities did not fail to congratulate the players for their match, and in particular the two scorers of the evening, Aurélien Tchouaméni (17th) and Olivier Giroud (78th). Several figures from the right and the extreme right, however, came under criticism after citing only the name of the second. The president of RN Jordan Bardella justified himself this Monday, December 12 on BFMTV.

World Cup: Tchouaméni, penalties, qualifying… what to remember from England-France

“Thank you Olivier Giroud, thank you Dider Deschamps, thank you the French team”, tweeted Jordan Bardella, Saturday evening, when the new president of the Republicans Eric Ciotti greeted “a very great Lloris, a masterful Giroud and a solid team”. “Thank you to all our players behind their captain Hugo Lloris and Olivier Giroud”, wrote the mayor of Nice (ex-LR) Christian Estrosi on the social network.

The sequel after the ad

Under the tweets of politicians, Internet users did not fail to underline this oversight, wondering about possible unconscious motivations: “And the players who have black skin, don’t you thank them? » « Selective memory on the far right? “I think you forgot to mention the author of the first goal: the Frenchman Aurelien Tchouameni. »

The Minister of Sports catches up the next day

They were also challenged by Olivier Faure, first secretary of the Socialist Party: “Either Bardella, Ciotti and Estrosi didn’t watch the first half, or they don’t know the name of Aurélien Tchouaméni, or…”, he eluded. ” Here, an oversight by Aurélien Tchouameni after opening the score. Amazing? “, also have commented the rebellious deputy Hadrien Clouet in response to Jordan Bardella’s tweet.

The three men, however, are not the only ones to have failed to congratulate the Real Madrid player by name. The Minister of Sports Amélie Oudéa-Castéra was also pinned for her tweet quoting only Olivier Giroud on the evening of the victory of the Blues. She finally published a tweet on Sunday morning welcoming the strike of Aurélien Tchouaméni “flashed at 78 km/h” and “a huge match to win the middle battle”.

In the head to “DD”: “Victory without Mbappé”

Asked about this omission this Monday morning on BFMTV, the boss of the RN explained that he had done “a small special mention to Olivier Giroud because he was, in the opinion of the commentators, the one who scored the decisive goal”. “I congratulate everyone”he added.

The RN deputy also points out that Aurélien Tchouaméni “also committed a foul which resulted in a penalty”. According to him, his choice between the two players is due to chance, “unless you lend me subliminal thoughts”, he retorted in front of Apolline de Malherbe.
