Sputnik reports : The French President aroused laughter and incomprehension with his behavior during the World Cup final between Les Bleus and Albiceleste.
Jupiter has been acting up again. Often criticized for being an omnipresent leader, Emmanuel Macron stole the show from the players of the France team, after their defeat in the final of the FIFA World Cup.
The French President has indeed been the target of numerous criticisms. His attitude in the stands was particularly shocking. The Head of State indeed showed great enthusiasm in the bleachers, jumping, shouting and no longer standing still during this game with twists and turns.
But Emmanuel Macron also played the leading roles after the match, notably descending on the lawn to console the players. Its proximity with Kylian Mbappe in particular has been much commented on.
The President took the player by the arm, even going so far as to pat him on the stomach and take his head in his hands. The same scenes repeated themselves during the medal presentation, with the visibly annoyed French striker even seeming to snub Emmanuel Macron.
rain of criticism
This attitude aroused indignation on the left as well as on the right. Green MP Sandrine Rousseau thus spoke of the “embarrassment” caused by the French President.
His colleague Danièle Obono (LFI) for her part spoke of “international shame”, in comparison with the restraint and elegance of Kylian Mbappé.
Football lover, Emmanuel Macron had already let his joy burst in a rather unconventional way during the Russian World Cup in 2018, won by France.
