"Zidane" causes the suspension of the duties of the President of the French Federation

The duties of the President of the French Football Federation, Noel Le Graet, have been suspended by the extraordinary executive body of the federation, and Philippe Diallo will guarantee the temporary mission, according to what a member of the body revealed to Agence France-Presse on Wednesday.

Le Graet, who was president of the federation in 2011 and his current term ends in 2024, was weakened by controversial statements about former French football star Zinedine Zidane and testimonies about supposed sexual behavior.

The duties of the Director General, Florence Ardoin, have also been suspended, according to the same source.
