Asked this Tuesday at a press conference on the Super League project that animates the world of European football, Stéphane Moulin, the coach of Angers, was angry against those who, according to him, flout the values of sport.
Stéphane Moulin will soon be leaving Angers, at the end of this Ligue 1 season. And the one who has coached the SCO since 2011 does not intend to occupy his free time watching matches in the next Super League, a competition that could quickly see the light of day. at the initiative of 12 major European clubs.
>> The crisis of the Super League live
“I will not look. You know my relationship to money, but then football money like that, I find it scandalous. We do not make the selection by money, pleaded Stéphane Moulin on Tuesday, in a press conference before the quarter-final of the Coupe de France this Wednesday (6:45 p.m.) against PSG There are already enough areas where we experience this in our society, in the world. Sport is anything but money. There is the merit of performance. “
In Ligue 1 since the 2015-2016 season with Angers, Stéphane Moulin has managed to stabilize his team in the elite of French football. “That would mean that you just need to have money to enter this competition, it’s disgusting, Moulin said again about this European Super League. I don’t even understand these people who had this idea, even if we understood that they wanted more money. It’s a shame. To associate high-level sport with a functioning like that, we would be going to flout all sporting values. “
If this Super League comes into being, 20 clubs should participate in principle, replacing the Champions League. Or rather in competition with the competition of UEFA, which disapproves of this project. “If this league were to exist, I will not watch a game. And I would especially not pay to enrich these people who are already so rich. It would also mean that we cut the rug from under the feet to great stories. , regretted Moulin again. It is part of sport. Everyone must be allowed to reach the top one day. Where are we going? It is the antithesis of everything. Sport conveys values: effort , of self-giving, of performance. Now you just need to have a well-stocked checkbook. I hope that will not see the light of day. “
