The LFP’s proposal to play Monaco-Lyon in China is reacting. Bruno Genesio joked about this idea of relocation.
While the Professional Football League is looking for all possible and imaginable means to allow Ligue 1 to develop its notoriety beyond the French borders, the proposal made by Vincent Labrune and his management to organize the meeting of the 23rd day of championship betweenAS Monaco and theOlympique Lyonnais on the side of China reacted Bruno Genesio.
Asked this Friday on the subject at a press conference, the Stade Rennais coach sent out very soon, ironically proposing to move the meeting to another planet: “On Mars. Let’s go to mars“Beyond this cynical humor, the former OL tactician gave his feelings on the issue:”I understand that our leaders are looking for solutions to the financial problems affecting French football. You have to be serious and understand it. Now, play a French championship match in China, apart from the financial interest, I don’t really see what that can bring.“
For Bruno Genesio, the choice of the LFP is debatable: “It all depends on the priorities. We can understand that we need money and we want to get it back. Now, is it worth it for the health of the players? For the show and the audience?“Charge to the League to decide.
