The Girondins de Bordeaux presented their new coach Vladimir Petkovic as the man who brought down the Blues at the Euro with Switzerland. An ad that went badly on social networks.
This is called turning the knife into the wound. The Girondins de Bordeaux formalized the arrival of Vladimir Petkovic on Tuesday evening with a short video in which the successor of Jean-Louis Gasset is above all presented as the man who managed to bring down the Blues in the round of 16 of the Euro . A factual presentation quite accurate but perhaps also awkward given the immense disappointment that resulted in France from this meeting.
The clip includes painful images of Kylian Mbappé missing his face-to-face with the Swiss goalkeeper during the shooting session and images of the match in black and white, accompanied by a voice-over and inlaid comments: “We all remember that moment. We remember exactly where we were and with whom. A sad evening for us and a magical moment for the Swiss. Impossible to imagine such a scenario. Impossible to imagine my players eliminated in the round of 16. However. A coach believed it. From beginning to end.“
A hymn to the glory of Petkovic biting the dust with the Blues which went badly with some Internet users. “But what is this presentation? Go hop in Ligue 2One of them protests. “I sincerely hope that you will be relegated to Ligue 2Another storms. “Well done really, very, very smart. The whole of France will hate you. Good relegation is all you deserve», Regrets a third. Even the famous parody account of the French Federation of Lose went there with a wink: “Welcome and thank you Vlad.“
“This is an announcement that will not necessarily delight some fans of the France team, but – at least – it will please all our supporters», Indicated the club, fully assuming its audacious communication to announce the arrival of the man who led for seven years the Swiss selection.
