We knew that René Girard and Pascal Dupraz, already opponents on several occasions in L1, had hardly any affinities. “He’s just a colleague,” said the Parisian technician about his Norman counterpart before the shock of the 9th day of Ligue 2, this Saturday, between Paris FC and Caen (3-1),
Between the two benches, it heated and it was cursed. At a press conference, Dupraz displayed cold anger. He has already mentioned the “Rainville show (the referee)” before attacking René Girard. “He insulted me,” Dupraz squeals. I had never been called shit (sic) by a colleague… In addition, it is with complete impunity. We are educators, we should not have this kind of behavior. Girard is used to this fact. But I am 58 years old, nothing surprises me in this world anymore. But he was champion of France and Paris FC is obviously already in L1. Without being a beautiful person, he is a good coach. “
“Dupraz is not a saint”
By presenting himself, in turn, in front of the microphones, René Girard did not wish to argue. “I’m not going to waste my time talking about Mr. Dupraz. Let him do his job, take care of himself before talking about others. I have other things to do than go into this kind of gossip. ” Relaunched on the words attributed to him by Dupraz, the coach of Paris FC was suddenly more offensive. : “Oh well, did he tell you that? I am not a reporter and I would not say what he said… He is not a saint. To me he doesn’t mean much in football and he knows it. “
Before leaving the press room, Girard wished, however, to raise the debate. “Before concluding, I want to bring my thoughts to Bruno Martini, a friend who is gone. At least he was someone, ”he sighs in tears.
