The new consultant of the Dream Team RMC Sport Stéphane Guy returned this Thursday to the words of Maxime Saada, guest of the After Foot the day before. The journalist particularly regrets the current speech of the boss of Canal + concerning his dismissal.
“I am always moved when I think about it and when I heard it yesterday”: nearly six months after his forced departure from Canal +, precipitated by comments in support of Sébastien Thoen, a comedian also dismissed for making fun of ‘a program of the group, Stéphane Guy has not forgotten. At the microphone of the After Foot, he confides on this episode: “It brings a lot of feelings in me. During the years that I spent there, I never occupied a second of the antenna without think about family members, who are the subscribers.
“A speech very far from the one he has held publicly since”
“I was a little surprised that he brought up my name because there is a procedure going on. He is right to say that I felt very free and deeply at home in Canal. I felt like part of a family. , like at home. You can’t say anything else when you’ve spent 25 years in the same place, otherwise you’re a little masochistic “.
This Wednesday, Maxime Saada explained what pushed him to fire the commentator last Christmas: “We had to part with him for a very simple reason: he tended to consider that Canal + was his antenna”. What Stéphane Guy responds curtly: “What troubled me a little is that the last discussion I had face to face with him was just a few days before the guillotine passed me on. the neck. I keep the verbatim carefully, it could at one time or another be useful. It is a speech very far from the one he has held publicly since “.
“If I was where I was, it wasn’t by chance”
“What Maxime didn’t tell you yesterday is that if I was where I was, it wasn’t by chance, adds the member of the Dream Team RMC. There are internal studies that are made regularly by Canal and which validated the fact that I occupied this position. It was not only by the desire of Maxime “.
Finally, the former journalist of the encrypted channel ends by recalling that Maxime Saada had been able to count on him in all circumstances: “One day at Canal, we found ourselves where there was no longer any rights at all. ( …) When we had the needs of my temperament and my energy, we knew where to find me, and that should not be forgotten “.
