(Independent) French accused of plan to limit ‘African’ footballers

The French Sports Minister, Chantal Jouanno, called yesterday for an investigation into allegations that the nation’s football body tried to set up discriminatory quotas to limit the number of players of African origin in France’s youth system.

Management figures at France’s Football Federation are accused of advising some youth training centres to limit to 30 percent the number of apprentice players of North-African or Sub-Saharan African origin.

Ms Jouanno called the allegations contrary to “the Constitution, the law, the values and history of football, and in particular the history of football in our country”.
