The Paris prosecutor's office opened a criminal case against the head of the French Football Federation (FFF), Noel Le Gret, on charges of sexual harassment. This was reported by L'Equipe.
According to the source, 81-year-old Le Gret is accused of psychological and sexual harassment by the agent of several players of the French national team Sony Sweed. According to the woman, in 2014, the head of the federation suggested that she “surrender to help him.”
The case will be referred to the court. The investigation has been entrusted to the Violence Against Personal Brigade (BRDP).
BAGNET recalls that the FFF executive committee previously suspended Noel Le Gret from the position of head of the organization after disrespectful remarks regarding Zinedine Zidane. The functionary said that if Zidane called him about working in the French national team, he “would not even pick up the phone.” Later, Le Gret made a public apology.
