After Mohamed Camara with AS Monaco, the behavior of Nabil Bentaleb, LOSC midfielder, is also controversial. Like the Malian, Bentaleb was absent from the pre-match photo on Sunday against Nice on the 34th and final day, and found himself pinned on homophobia in football.

“How many other micro homophobic behaviors? The results of this LFP operation are catastrophic and will also have succeeded in provoking a renewed hatred against LGBT people on social networks (and in Mali). No sanctions, or even any communication from the LFP: why would homophobes bother? It’s like this all year round,” Rouge Direct said in a statement.

The Egyptian Mostafa Mohamed, FC Nantes striker, also created controversy by voluntarily missing the trip to Monaco during that day, in order not to wear the jersey and its specific logo to say stop homophobia. A similar position to last year for him. A jersey dedicated to the fight against homophobia was worn in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 like every year, but now without rainbow printing on the back. The LFP deemed the color counterproductive.

“We must respect. Everyone has the right to their beliefs. That’s also respect, it’s respecting people who have other beliefs,” said Jimmy Briand, 38, consultant for Prime Video and former player for Rennes, Lyon, Guingamp and Bordeaux. The Minister of Sports, Amélie Oudéa-Castera, called for “firm sanctions both against the player but also against the club which allowed him to do so”, referring to the Mohamed Camara case.
