“I love France more than anything else, and although I am far from perfect, I cannot continue to serve (the national team) in the current system because the circumstances are so far from what is required at the highest level. I am very sad, but this step is inevitable.” To maintain peace of mind. Unfortunately, under these circumstances, I will not be able to participate in this year’s World Cup either. My facial features may hide pain, but my heart is aching…and I don’t want to suffer anymore”- The 142-time national team player, one of the best defenders in the world, wrote in his Facebook post.

The first reactions of the French sports press do not help reveal the exact reasons, although they indicate that the relationship between Renard and the captain of the national team, Corinne Diacre, has not been cloudless in recent years.

Many of his teammates, such as Marie Antoinette Catoto and Delphine Cascarino, responded with messages of support, as did Norwegian goalscorer Ada Hegerberg, a teammate of Reynard’s at Lyon.

Actually, not much later Katoto – Just like his teammate at Paris Saint-Germain, Kadidiatou Diani – They also announced that they would join their team captain and stop playing with their national team, targeting the reasons more specifically, referring to the unacceptable activities of the administration for them.
