Holder of the title in the Coupe de France, FC Nantes did not leave their share of the recipe to fans of AF Virois, as is usually done.
A lack of elegance on the part of the defending champion? This weekend, after the 32nd finals of the Coupe de France, FC Nantes did not leave their share of the recipe to their opponent, AF Virois, who hosted the meeting at the Stade Michel d’Ornano in Caen .
At each match, the two clubs share the ticketing profits, and it is customary for professional clubs to leave their share of the cake when they face amateur clubs. According to Ouest-France, FC Nantes did not do this (and this is not the first time this has happened under the Waldemar Kita era). The amount in question? 18,000 euros.
“I would obviously have preferred to thank FC Nantes cAs did opponents OGC Nice and Olympique de Marseille and many Ligue 1 and Ligue 2 teams. But I respect Mr. Kita’s choice to demand his right to his recipe.”commented Norman President Christophe Lécuyer.
I would obviously have preferred to thank the @FCNantes as did the opponents of @ogcnice @OM_Officiel and lots of L1 and L2 teams. But I respect Mr. Kita’s choice to claim his right to his recipe. https://t.co/vS8XGXuD7I
