In the picture The Bleus are reportedly pushing for a change to the current convention in January 2023, with the FFF’s ongoing commitments preventing a quicker change.
In the players’ new proposal, the validity of the agreement would be two years for ” to be able to adapt to the result of each major competition », while what exists today was created after the 2010 World Cup in South Africa and the Knysna affair. Beyond” the clarification of the FFF’s rights over the collective image of the French national team », the priority request of internationals obviously refers to the management of their individual image.
More freedom in the choice of companies to represent
The players claim to be able to choose the companies they represent for two reasons: to satisfy their personal convictions, or in case of conflict between their sponsors and the sponsors of the French national team. Although Noël Le Graët had promised the players to review the deal, especially after Kylian Mbappé’s refusal to take part in a commercial operation for the Blues, the upcoming World Cup in Qatar (November 20 to December 18) could mark a turning point in management. right image
