A few days after the political attacks against Youssoupha, author of a song to accompany the announcement of the Blues list for the Euro, the rapper would be very affected, according to L’Equipe.
After the political attacks, Youssoupha received the disavowal of Noël Le Graët, the president of the French Football Federation, for the achievement of the title “Write my name in Blue” accompanying the announcement of the list of 26 French players for the ‘Euro. The reaction too much, no doubt, for the Congolese rapper.
“This is not the anthem of the Blues, said Thursday Le Graët in the columns of the Parisian. It does not appear on the site of the Federation and we do not intend to ask people to repeat these words . Our young employees of the sales department had this idea to accompany the unveiling of the list of 26 Blues. Personally, I discovered it. (…) I believe that we should not have done it and let the list be divulged as usual, without communication. “
Supported by Varane
After this controversy which has lasted for ten days, Youssoupha canceled a telephone interview he was to grant to the newspaper L’Equipe. The rapper would be according to the daily “very affected by the extent of this affair, while his text wanted to unite”.
While currently living in Ivory Coast, Youssoupha will no doubt note the support from the players themselves. “Personally, it’s a song that I like,” said Raphaël Varane. “You can always look for subjects that divide, but at Clairefontaine, it’s not a subject.”
