The Group F clash between the French champions and the Ruhr club will be framed by the traditional Canal Champions Club with in particular the Hervé Mathoux-Laure Boulleau duo at the helm. The former PSG fullback spoke to Eurosport about her role alongside the emblematic CFC presenter.

“It may seem easy like that, but a Champions League evening, professionally, is not simple, because we are live etc. So I know that I have to be at 400% of my potential”she first explained, adding: “In general when I prepare the show, I do a 15-minute meeting with Hervé to tell him what themes I have worked on, in any case my orientations, and I say to him “if at any point you feel it, I rather have this vision.” But then there also needs to be an element of authenticity in a show so we don’t know how everything is going to happen in advance…”

I think I’ve progressed pretty well

“Sometimes we need long arguments and sometimes, on the contrary, we need what we call a “smash volley” between Hervé and me, namely very quick little repartee, she continued. Often, we tend to think that the more we say, the better, but I also think that it’s the changes of pace that make a show successful. »

Laure Boulleau also spoke about her evolution after five seasons on the CFC board. “I’m happy because I think I’ve progressed pretty well. I know that if we compare my first shows to those of today, there is just no comparison possible, which is normal. I am also satisfied to have opened myself up to other things, to documentaries, to mini-documentaries with “24h de Boulleau”, I am trying to experience everything that this profession can offer me, she explained. This is also why high-level sport is an exceptional school of life, because it prepares you for other professions. And TV forces us to constantly question ourselves. When I was a player, I was more hardworking than super talented. So I already had this habit of working a lot to obtain results. For now I’m getting some, but I feel like I still have some under my belt. »
