"And to assure:" I will not stop the matches. I am against, totally, but I do not want to be held hostage to homophobia. There is no omerta. There is a fierce desire to ensure that we can be on stage in a very dignified and friendly way and with the family. But I would stop a match for racist shouts, it's very clear, or for security reasons, "he said.
"To think that football is homophobic is a bit of coffee. I do not accept, "declared Le Graët. "We are going to make sure that it disappears but the stopping of matches is something else. The game is something complicated, beautiful when you look. […] We will make sure that there are no more streamers. But stop the matches, no. "

Christmas Le Graët said he was "upset" this Tuesday on FranceInfo: "For 8 years, we had to organize 1,000 matches in France, there was a mistake.
