André Villas-Boas did not hide his concern for French football given the crisis in Ligue 1 TV rights.
André Villas-Boas appeared particularly upset at a press conference after the defeat suffered by his men during the shock against the PSG for the Champions Trophy. And if he delivered a very astonishing analysis of the meeting, considering in particular that “The best team had lost”, the coachOlympic Marseille was undoubtedly much more correct in his remarks when discussing the crisis of TV rights. But this time again, the bitterness was very present.

“The situation is so pathetic that there is nothing to say. France is one of the largest economies in the world, and having a guy who buys the TV rights and leaves after three or four months, being legally quiet, it’s incredible ”, he thus launched, adding on the subject of the announcement by Maxime Saada, the boss of Canal +, of his desire to return the two matches broadcast by the encrypted channel: “I don’t know how we got to this point. Now Mr. Saada has spoken, he is also playing his game with TV rights. “
The Marseille coach did not hide his concern, fearing the worst-case scenario for French football. “Football is changing. And it’s going to be financial chaos for all the clubs, I think. The clubs need to set up with the League… I don’t know if this is legally and legally possible. But it is not possible to continue ”, he continued, not failing to slip a small tackle for PSG: “Except for Paris which operates with losses every year, it will be hard for everyone else. The owners continue to inject money to pay us but it will be difficult for the future. It’s pathetic to get to this point, it’s incredible for a championship among the greatest in Europe. ”
