On set Sunday for the Canal Football Club, Laure Boulleau was widely criticized for having expressed doubts about the arrival of Alexis Sanchez at Olympique de Marseille.
A week after the resumption of Ligue 1, it was back to school day, Sunday, for the Canal Football Club. Not scheduled the previous weekendthe program presented by Hervé Mathoux had its premiere of the season, on the sidelines of the second day of Ligue 1.
On set for this show, Laure Boulleau was the victim of numerous criticisms on social networks for having expressed doubts about Alexis Sanchez, the new recruit of Olympique de Marseille. “I am not really convinced by this idea, confided the former French international. He is a player who had a golden period because he had a lot of energy, grinta, intensity. But it’s related to his physique. He is a player who, as soon as he loses his physical intensity, his level of play suffers. And I have the impression that for four years, it’s a bit of a shadow of itself. If he doesn’t have that rage, he can’t be Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez. »
That a PSG employee & TV consultant takes a dim view of the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in the Marseille city is a huge surprise… I guess we must see the Neymar-Mbappé relationship in a good light, huh #SB29OM

The problem for Laure Boulleau is that her past as a former player of Paris Saint-Germain, and especially her status as a current employee of PSG TV (the mention is still on her Twitter bio) were immediately reminded of her, for question his objectivity when discussing the news of Olympique de Marseille.
Not objective with OM?
“That a PSG employee & TV consultant takes a dim view of the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in Marseille is a huge surprise, commented in particular Mohamed Toubache-Ter, former director of communication for Angers SCO. I guess we have to look favorably on the Neymar-Mbappé relationship, huh. »
It is true that Laure Boulleau has rather minimized the little quarrel between Neymar and Kylian Mbappéwhile the two men will be summoned by Paris Saint-Germain to have to explain themselves.
Remember that Laure Boulleau is a straightforward employee of PSG, she is very (too) close to Neymar, she is a pro-Paris, fan of Mbappé and Messi, in what world could she speak well of OM, sworn enemy of his club?
Opinion without interest, she should abstain#TeamOM #MercatOM https://t.co/RZTKfJjmQg pic.twitter.com/BCb4py2Y7C

The most annoying thing is that Laure Boulleau has also been the victim of numerous sexist attacks. Which had the gift of annoying Maryse Ewanje-Epée, the RMC consultant, who replied to a twitto who questioned the legitimacy of the former player, simply “here to look pretty” (and this is far from being the most violent criticism suffered by Laure Boulleau).
“Would it be possible for you to make a criticism that does not stink of sexism beyond questioning the indisputable legitimacy of an international? Would it be just possible for you to argue without ranting? Being a sports fan does not give you all the rights”railed Maryse Ewanje-Epée, herself a former high-level athlete converted to the media.

“I am not defending Laure Boulleau. I tell you clearly that one can criticize without falling into sexist clichés.notably added Maryse Ewanje-Epée.
