The mask is mandatory in the French League due to the fifth wave of Corona

The French League decided to oblige fans to wear a face mask during the championship matches due to fears of the repercussions of the fifth wave of the Corona virus.

Which began to increase in the country during the past few days, as it will be the Saint-Etienne match against Paris Saint-Germain, which is scheduled to be held at 2:00 in the afternoon, tomorrow, Sunday, at the “Geoffroy Gichard” stadium.

Within the fifteenth round of competitions for the current season 2021/2022.

According to the association’s statement, the fans who will crawl to the stadium, specifically against Saint-Etienne, whether from his supporters, will be required to wear an obligatory face mask.

Radio “Monte Carlo” highlighted the decision of the French League and confirmed that young people from the age of 12 years, two months and up to 17 years are required to submit a health card for vaccination against the Corona virus.

She added that Paris Saint-Germain fans are banned as this decision aims to prevent the risks of serious disturbances to public order, such as occurred during previous matches “between the two clubs, especially in 2015 and 2019”.

Paris Saint-Germain supporters in the city had previously clashed with the opposing team’s fans, especially after the match, as the hosts lit large-scale fireworks in the stands in 2019.

In another context, the Brazilian Leonardo, the sporting director of Paris Saint-Germain, commented on the news of negotiations with Frenchman Zinedine Zidane in order to take over the coaching job in the coming period, succeeding Mauricio Pochettino.

“We have a lot of respect for Zinedine Zidane, for what he did as a player and coach, but I can tell you very clearly that there is no contact and there is no meeting with him,” Leonardo said in comments published by the newspaper “The Guardian”.

He added: “We do not want Pochettino to leave, he did not ask to leave and no club contacted us.”

And recent reports had expected that Pochettino would leave Paris Saint-Germain for a new experience with Manchester United, knowing that his contract with the Parisian team continues until June 2023.
