French First Lady “Pick Junya Ito as our national university”…Deschamps is also puzzled

French President Emmanuel Macron’s wife Brigitte Macron made remarks at an event accompanied by Deschamps that Japan’s national soccer team striker Junya Ito (Stade de Reims) should be selected for the national team.

According to French media ‘Foot Mercato’ on the 23rd (Korea Standard Time), Mrs. Macron visited an event held at the University Hospital of Reims last weekend with director Deschamps.

At the meeting, Deschamps asked questions about the team’s management. Notably, as the event took place in the Lancs region, some asked the team to frequently select players belonging to the Lancs team. Deschamps said, “Of course, I check (with the lance players) just like any other club.”

Mrs. Macron stepped in. “There is a very good Japanese player in France. What’s his name?” she said. When reporters asked “Ito,” he said, “Yes. Ito, he is a very good player,” voicing his opinion to Deschamps. 토토사이트 추천

Deschamps made an embarrassed face and said, “He’s Japanese.” Locally, the comment is interpreted as an attempt to show that Macron is as interested in soccer as his husband.

Macron is a famous soccer fanatic. He played for the school’s football team when he was a graduate student at the National Graduate School of Public Administration, and he is known to be a big fan of the prestigious Olympique Marseille in his country.

When France won the 2022 World Cup final in Qatar, they watched it on the spot, and when Kylian Mbappe scored, he rose from the VIP stand and roared loudly. Meanwhile, Ito is currently participating in the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Asian Cup in Qatar as a member of the Japanese national team.
