The OM striker confides in stopping the championship, the participation of his club in the next Champions League. It also supports the work accomplished by the medical staff.
He blew his thirtieth candle on April 17 in Marseille where he is confined with his wife. Valère Germain, like his partners, welcomed with satisfaction and relief the qualification for the Champions League. At the end of the contract in a year, he hopes to participate in the next European campaign. He talks about the future of his coach, André Villas-Boas, and insists on the solidarity of footballers for caregivers.
Without the final cessation of the championship, would you have been reluctant to resume training?
VALÈRE GERMAIN. There would have been a form of apprehension, even if the clubs had, beforehand, surrounded themselves with the maximum of precautions to guarantee our safety. In most trades, you can observe a safe distance, wear a mask and gloves, and have hydroalcoholic gel in your pocket. Football is a contact sport. An attacker, like me, cannot say to an opposing defender: be nice, leave me a meter of space. It’s impossible. We were also all affected by the contamination of the Montpellier Junior Sambia.
