“Meven when i awakened early, i slept higher anyway, three to 4 hours greater than common. “ The day after the top of the excellent journey of his Gonfrevillais within the Coupe de France, the robust man of ESMGO was in a position to breathe somewhat, after this loopy day which might be remembered, regardless of the elimination of the gamers of Rachid Hamzaoui going through LOSC (Zero-2). A membership that has not gained the center of the Gonfrevillais president, removed from it …
Are you able to think about that the stress has dropped considerably after this historic match in your membership?

To inform you the reality, I’m within the strategy of billing for individuals who purchased seats in containers, but in addition to determine the primary monetary stability sheet for the reason that eighth spherical of the Coupe de France in order that I can current it to my managers. There are nonetheless loads of issues to settle within the subsequent two days, together with the rental of the Océane Stadium. It was an actual problem to meet it. Effectively … After which the LOSC didn’t depart us a single penny. “
Not like a membership like OM, which has introduced that it is able to make a transfer and which has left a big a part of the proceeds in Granville, was this not the case for Lille?
” No nothing in any respect. Even when the LOSC redistributes the cash to different native newbie golf equipment, it might have minimize the cake not by 5, however by six towards Gonfreville, an newbie membership too. However no. I’m very dissatisfied with these folks. Identical to the habits of their workforce, on find out how to have fun the primary purpose. The LOSC individuals are not folks from the North. We usually have a relatively optimistic picture, a fame for heat between folks, however there, none of that. There was no presentation to the president that I’m, no contact, only a consultant of the membership who’s a former participant (Editor's word: Franck Béria), pretty closed and probably not in his place even when we will do nothing blame him. This isn’t how I see the exchanges, the connection with folks. “
With regards to finance, can we have already got a primary thought of the financial advantages generated following your excellent journey within the Coupe de France?
“No, I’ll solely talk as soon as all of the calculations have been made, the prices of the journey to Saint-Brieuc for the gamers and the extra coach for our supporters, different bills at our expense, and many others.” The one factor we all know is the sum of the FFF's endowments (word: € 102,500). I obtained a switch from the Fed for € 10,760, I'm questioning as a result of I don't know what it’s. However that may depart issues on the membership, sum. Understanding that the ESMGO price range could be very steady
(€ 440,000). We went to the DNCG every week in the past, our accounting touchdown could be very optimistic (Editor's word: + € 27,000). My future president, Emmanuel Leroux, could have a wholesome money circulation in June. “
” This workforce
should keep in N3 “
Let's come again to this extraordinary assembly for ESMGO, and for you too. How did you expertise it?
“I went to the lodge within the morning to have a espresso with the gamers, and there was enjoyable. From 9:45 am, I arrived on the stadium, within the eye of the storm (laughs), there was a lot to do beforehand, between the cellphone calls, the official lounge, the folks within the lodges, answering to all of the media requests, it was unbelievable. I haven't seen the time passed by. The volunteers and leaders dealt with the preparations very properly, it was vital. We're having enjoyable, however I haven't had time to savor. By means of this match, I needed most people to find ESMGO, to maintain picture of it. The habits of the gamers on the sphere was exemplary in an intense match. I feel we had been as much as the occasion. The Kop, led by leaders and volunteers, was additionally. “
Aren't you afraid of the aftermath after the Coupe de France? Particularly for the reason that workforce is the crimson lantern of its championship …
” I have no idea. This course may be helpful, it reveals that we’re able to nice matches. Cédric Le Merrer (ex-president, from 2005 to 2018) will get nearer to the workforce. She should keep in Nationwide three. We all the time have a late recreation to play. Hopefully extra folks in Baquet, we see excellent matches, high quality soccer. Would a descent be dramatic? Sure and no. The final time, we went down from CFA 2 in DH on the time, and we had been in a position to return up instantly. We might be a yr behind, certain, however that might not change the face of the world. Issues are clear, you must work, work, and never do something. “
Within the spans
Philippe left empty seat
The rumor that Edouard Philippe is attending this spherical of 16 has lengthy been round. However the Prime Minister, though current in Le Havre on Saturday, didn’t make the quick journey to go to the Océane Stadium the place, in its environment, members of the CGT had been distributing leaflets.
“I feel he was conscious that he might put us in bother by coming to the stadium, says Michel Garcia. Its place was subsequent to mine, it remained empty. I solely met him within the night, in a big brasserie in Le Havre. There have been lots of people within the official gallery, with the mayors of Le Havre and Gonfreville-l'Orcher, Jean-Baptiste Gastinne and Alban Bruneau, MP Jean-Paul Lecoq and even Pierre Leresteux, the president of the soccer league of Normandy.
The attractive gesture of ESMGO
The French Cup journey lasted a number of months for the Gonfrevillais membership, who fell respectively through the regional rounds of Croix Vallée Eure (D2), JS Douvres-la-Délivrande (R1), Cany FC (R3) and AS Verson (R2). 4 teams, every of which obtained 5 invites from ESMGO to attend the assembly. Class.
Very near the report …
For 61 folks, the attendance report on the Océane Stadium for an official membership match was due to this fact not damaged (15 552 spectators at HAC – Caen in April 2013, 15 491 for Saturday's match).
“We had all the small print, the figures are very exact with digital counters,” explains Garcia. After which I’ve quite a lot of respect for Vincent Volpe, the president of the HAC (Editor's word: disembarked from the US a number of hours earlier and arrived on the finish of the primary interval). I prefer it, I wouldn’t have needed to beat this report, out of politeness. It needs to be famous that there have been no main incidents to notice, aside from the trespassing after the match of two folks on the garden, who had been arrested by the police. “We’ll file a criticism tomorrow morning (learn this morning). When you don't, you're accountable and also you incur FFF penalties, says Garcia. Individuals tried to pressure entry, however all of them had tickets. I wouldn’t be imply to HAC, however I feel it underestimated the filtering of the general public, which solely arrived by two doorways firstly. There was a visitors jam, with the palpations, some folks missed the primary ten minutes of the match. “
