Le Graët gives up after 24 hours

Noël Le Graët had however indicated Sunday evening in The Team that the agreement would not be reviewed for the time being. “Nothing is going to change between now and the World Cup, which is coming very quickly, he said. I must a priori meet the players on Monday to discuss with them. After the World Cup, we will see what to do. He There will be new players and some new sponsors. It will be an opportunity to take stock.”
