“You made the French people dream who needed it”: Macron’s speech in the Blues locker room

It is in a much less festive atmosphere than Wednesday that the President of the Republic Emmanuel Macron came to address the French players this Sunday. In the minutes following the defeat of the French team in the World Cup final against Argentina, the Head of State took a few minutes to congratulate the men of Didier Deschamps despite the sad outcome of this meeting . In particular, he wanted to highlight the reaction capacity of the Blues, who came back twice to score.

“You have made millions of French men and women dream so far and still today they have vibrated, loose Emmanuel Macron in the face of totally haggard players, staring into space. You thrilled billions of people who watched this game. You have done great football and great sport. The lessons you will learn. There will undoubtedly be regrets after this match. I would like there to be some who do not have too many regrets please. Listen to me carefully. You’re a really great team because I don’t think there’s any other team that could have done what you’ve done so far, to come back twice and come so close to winning it. »

In this one-minute and 30-second speech, the President of the Republic thanks the players for the happiness they have brought to the French for over a month. And already wants to look to the future, which could be bright under the impetus of a promising young generation.

“You will win more”

“It’s football, it’s sport, but you can’t help it. You had the heart, the hunger, the desire and the talent to go there. Just for that I wanted to come see you and say thank you, he says to the players. You have made the French women and men who needed it dream. So thank you. Thank you to those who may stop the jersey after this game. There are plenty who are very young and who will do many more, more than me as president. You will gain more because you have an on-board experience that is crazy. Tonight, it’s going to be hard but tomorrow we’re back on the attack. That’s how we earn them. Either way, I’m proud of you. Long live the Republic and long live France. »

His speech ends with light applause from the players and a long hug given by Emmanuel Macron to Didier Deschamps, marked after this failure.
