The captain of the Blue does not hide her dismay. “These extra-sporting affairs are not good for the image, and this is not only valid for football, regrets the OL player. It’s damaging, it tarnishes the image of women’s football. But even in the Netflix series, you don’t see that… There are a lot of questions, well me, personally, I ask myself a lot. I don’t want to intrude, I want to stay away from all of this, but if everything we read is accurate, it’s sad, and an incredible story. I rubbed shoulders with the two players in the France team, and we wonder why… We don’t talk much about women’s football, so if we talk about it for that, we won’t make much progress… ”
“The more it comes out, the more we say to ourselves, in the locker room, that it is not possible”
Renard admits that the account of the case of the aggression of Hamraoui, as it is reported, is incredible. “It’s hard yes, admits the tricolor defender. I don’t think we talk about it when we find ourselves in the France team, but if we have to do it to get rid of it, I think the coach will talk about it quietly. Rivalry happens every day, and not just in sport, in business too. But from there to manage to do these improbable things… We ask ourselves questions, because if everything that comes out is true, it’s really hot. The more it comes out, the more we say to ourselves, in the locker room, that it is not possible. I don’t really understand, and it hurts. »
