Initially I accepted, Cyril Abiteboul would run the brand while Marcin Budkowski would take over the team, but in January came the appointment of Laurent Rossi. So I continued to hold what had already been My role was previously, ie as a consultant, but during 2021 I realized a desire on the part of the property to leave the “old”. There was a lot of jealousy, in the board of directors I found myself discovering certain decisions at the last minute. When the owner of the team does not say “good morning” when you arrive to the ring, then the slightest form of respect is missing and under the circumstances I’d rather step aside. Laurent Rossi wants to be aloneHe told me he no longer needed counseling and wanted all the spotlight for himself.”.
