It plays !
As an inveterate supporter of Olympique de Marseille, but also of football, the head of state could not refuse to participate in a small game of football … Images that gave rise to a scene quite surreal, where we see the president (in the team of blue chasubles, as if by chance) in the attack, on the left side of the field. Obviously quite comfortable with the ball at the foot, it seems however that he has some gaps to measure his shots! And it is not his opponent of the day, dressed in an orange outfit, who will say the opposite, he who took the ball in the face! A rather violent blow, since it unbalanced the player who fell and lost his cap in his fall. Not enough to stop the game, according to the referee, but Emmanuel Macron, who also knows how to greet his sports opponents, still asked him if he was okay.
An OM jersey visible throughout the speech
A concern that did not prevent him from continuing to play … and missing his frame! Moments later, the president had chosen to give a new nod to football and his club. While he was making his speech, alongside the Minister of Labor, Elisabeth Borne, and Jean-Michel Blanquer, Minister of Education, the Head of State had chosen to place a young participant, dressed in the jersey of OM, behind him. A judicious placement, since the young man was visible throughout the speech, broadcast live on the news channels! No coincidence …
