UNFP – Sylvain Kastendeuch reiterates her satisfaction

The UNFP co-chair does not turn: the decision to end the 2019-20 season was the only sustainable solution in France.

As our European neighbors prepare to resume the competition, and the Bundesliga has been back since May 16, the French Championship is still quiet and will not resume until the beginning of the 2020-21 season. In France, this decision has been the subject of much ink in recent weeks, while some presidents, such as Bernard Joannin (Amiens) and Jean-Michel Aulas (Lyon), for example, consider it unfair and hasty.

“A really good political decision, carefully considered”

An opinion not shared by Sylvain Kastendeuch, co-chair of the UNFP, who considers this exemplary decision. “The trigger was the statement from Prime Minister Edouard Philippe. It was he who called at the end of the game, it’s that simple”, first reminds the leader of the Paris columns.

“I, it seems to me, are the poor health conditions and the not very encouraging prospects, the fragile situation, which mainly guided his decision, that of the public authorities as well, because this type of decision is also made in the inter-ministerial committee. good, thoughtful political decision “, then Sylvain Kastendeuch added. As a reminder, Olympique Lyonnais decided to challenge the Cabinet to cancel the championship.
