Would Brigitte Macron be an avid follower of Stade de Reims? An exchange could in any case suggest so. The first lady, accompanied by Didier Deschamps, was visiting a hospital on Friday as part of the yellow coin operation.
Everyone answered several questions, many journalists being on site. And Didier Deschamps was logically asked about Stade de Reims, which is having a good start to the season in Ligue 1 (sixth). And while the world champion answered this question asked by Radio Champagne, Brigitte Macron intervened in the discussion.
Obviously knowledgeable, she was full of praise for Reims striker Junya Ito: “There is a Japanese who plays very well in Reims! What's his name again? » After being told the answer, she added: “Yes, Ito that’s it. He is very good". before continuing: “We must select him from the Didier team! Why don't you take it? »
The person then responded with implacable logic whose accuracy is difficult to deny: “Well because he’s Japanese! “, he replied, laughing. Too bad for the French team, as the Japanese has impressed in Ligue 1 this season.
