The goalkeeper of the France team and president of the players’ union in France, Vincent Gérard, gave a real rant to the EHF and the organizers of the Euro following the numerous cases detected since the start of the competition.

While the Blues returned to make a very good copy again by winning against the surprise of the Euro, the Netherlands, the French goalkeeper came out of his hinges at the microphone of beIN SPORTS by questioning the organization of the competition “It’s in relation to the situation here. For the moment, we are fairly spared by the Covid so you can’t accuse me of complaining for us and shooting at the ambulance. But there are 105 positive cases today in the different teams. What is the value of this competition? “. Vincent Gerard clearly said out loud what the handball planet has been thinking for a week now. Each day delivers its far too long list of new players affected by Covid and placed in solitary confinement. A real threat to the health of players.

What value will this euro have when we know, for example, that Germany has 13 players placed in solitary confinement for 72 hours or even Iceland which has lost 5 players today including Aron Palmarsson. Hungary does not apply the same level of sanitary measures as in France for example. Players are mixed with other customers in hotels. There is not really a health bubble as we experienced in Egypt for the World Cup a year ago or even the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
