Hugo Lloris, captain of the France team: “Something will be done” to defend human rights in Qatar

Hugo Lloris, captain of the France team, spoke on Monday about a potential joint action by the Blues regarding human rights in Qatar: “Something will be done, something will be put in place. You (the journalists) will be informed in due time, shortly. We cannot remain insensitive to these subjects. It will be done in a few days, or hours, we’ll see. »

At the question : “Are we expecting too much of the players? »Lloris replied: ” Yes. Football has a fairly important place in society and more and more is being asked of players. But I believe that what is asked of us above all is to perform well on the pitch. I think you have to keep the focus on the game. That’s the most important thing. We have this responsibility to represent our country sportingly. Then, outside, everyone is free to defend their opinions. »

“I and some of my partners have been discussing these kinds of topics for some time now”

Then Lloris continued: “As far as the France team is concerned, a few days before such an important deadline, since the opportunity presents itself every four years, we don’t want to miss it. But once again, these are subjects on which we cannot remain insensitive. And some of my partners and I have been talking about these kinds of topics for some time now. »

About wearing a colorful captain’s armbandLloris evacuated: “Before doing things, you need the agreement of FIFA, the agreement of the Federation. Afterwards, on the subject, of course, I have my personal opinion. And it joins a little bit that of President Noël Le Graët. When we are in France, when we welcome foreigners, we often want them to comply with our rules, to respect our culture, and I will do the same when I go to Qatar, quite simply. Afterwards, I can agree or not with their ideas, but I have to show respect for that. »
