Paris, February 28 (QNA) – French Football Federation (FFF) President Noel Le Graet submitted his resignation to the FFF Executive Committee.
Le Graet, who has held the FFF presidency since 2011, resigned amid a legal investigation following the report of an audit commissioned by the French Sports Ministry this month.
The 81-year-old was also subjected to severe criticism after he belittled former French national team star, Zinedine Zidane, after extending the contract of the current coach of the national team Didier Deschamps, until 2026.
The FFF Executive Committee announced, after its meeting on Jan 11, that Noel Le Graet was suspended from exercising his duties, and that his deputy Philippe Diallo, has been assigned to temporarily run the affairs of the federation. (QNA)
