Emmanuel Macron, and the football, it is a great love story. Present in Russia at the side of the First lady Brigitte Macron, the president of the Republic has forgotten all the conventions and left to explode his joy in the grand final France-Croatia (4-2) on 15 July last. In the bleachers, Emmanuel Macron, has also, like millions of French, savored his victory. Jumps, smiles, gestures victorious… the President seemed to be uncontrollable. The shots captured by the many photographers present in the stadium attest to that. At the time of the coronation of the Blue, it did not hesitate to be very touch with the players, congratulating them with hugs, and generous hugs.
Our President is far from being what is called a footix : it is a passion not just for the big events. Emmanuel Macron lives in Paris for work, of course, but his club of heart, he has never hidden, is none other than Olympique de Marseille. On August 15, 2017, he was also gone to participate in a training of the OM… to the delight of players and supporters. In fact, he had been invited to the training center Robert Louis-Dreyfus, the club’s president, Jacques-Henri Eyraud.
Florian Thauvin, a player of the OM and the Team of France, had shared on his Twitter account a photo of him on the pitch with Emmanuel Macron, which, obviously, was amused as a child. “A source of pride to have been able to meet with Mr. President and Emmanuel Macron, and a pleasure to have shared a few balloons with you !”, he wrote in the caption of this shot. For those who were asking the question, the President’s team had lost 2-3.
Recently, Emmanuel Macron has tried to win the heart of another player, Kylian Mbappé. Problem : it evolves as a striker for Paris Saint-Germain. In an interview published Tuesday, July 24, in France Football, the number 10 of the Blues tells us about the tone of humor that the president of the Republic, has tried to attract… in the phocean city. Emmanuel Macron “congratulated me and told me that he hoped that it lasts for the next fifteen years”, said the young athlete of 19 years. “On the tone of humor, he has even managed to put that should I go play a day in Marseille. I told him that it was impossible !” Missed.
