Idrissa Gueye did not participate in the victory of PSG on the lawn of Montpellier this Saturday evening (4-0). The Senegalese midfielder was however in the group announced this Saturday morning by the club and which traveled to the Hérault. Asked about the reason for this absence at the press conference, Mauricio Pochettino said: “Idrissa made the trip to Montpellier, but for personal reasons he had to leave the match sheet. But he wasn't hurt."
The Argentine coach will say no more. But the question arises: did Idrissa Gueye voluntarily refuse to play so as not to wear a jersey whose rainbow flocking, for all Ligue 1 players, was a symbol of the fight against homophobia? and rights of the LGBTQIA community? Since 2019, Ligue 1 has implemented this system as May 17 approaches, World Day Against Homophobia.
