For two weeks now, the Blues have been struggling on the lawn in the context of Euro 2021. This year, for the first time, the matches take place in different countries at each meeting. If the supporters make the trip and follow the Blues in the various stadiums, we see that the players’ relatives are few in number. Were seen in the stands during the last match in Hungary: the mother and brothers of Paul Pogba or the family of Karim Benzema.

Relatives put aside
Some like Lucas Digne or Antoine Griezmann are content with remote support from their families, in particular because because of the health crisis, relatives, even if they make the trip, should not have physical contact with the players. Lucas Digne therefore preferred that his wife Tiziri and their two children stay at home, because it would be too hard to see them and not be able to hug them: “My family will not come to the game. My little one is five months old, my big one is two years old. Explain to him that we cannot give him a kiss or a hug… “ The 27-year-old defender explained ahead of the game against Portugal.

Normally in Game 3, that’s where the families come in and then they spend a day or two together. There they do not even have the right to approach, there is a gap … ” had also commented the journalist Nathalie Iannetta.

Hugo Lloris must also compose without the presence of his wife Marine and their children. “It’s a big blow. Especially for the girls who reacted badly when they found out ” the guardian’s wife had declared to our colleagues at Gala.
