I was touched by the outpouring of popular support and the affection of everyone. All those who understood the need for change. I had a great conversation with McCourt, I had unconditional support, it warms my heart. It gives me energy. I decided to continue my mission as president. I will be in Paris on Sunday. I am a valuable person with convictions, I cannot just denounce a situation, I have to get to the bottom of things. I asked my lawyers to file a complaint. I don’t want conflict, I just want to put an end to patterns of behavior, so that it doesn’t happen again, he said. We must be able to work in a normal football club. We have done a lot of things since 2021 to improve the club. I know that everything is not perfect, we have a lot to do with humility. We must progress while maintaining these ethical rules. I am about to begin the most difficult period of my term as president. I am determined to make OM one of the best European clubs. I need the support of everyone who wants to grow the club. We must come out bigger and put an end to all the practices that I have denounced. We have to change things together. I want to broaden the debate so that what happened is no longer accepted, here or elsewhere in the world of sport. »
