Despite the fiasco of the Blues at the Euro (elimination by Switzerland in the round of 16), the leaders of the French Football Federation (FFF) aspired, this fall, to a period of calm. But at the Parisian headquarters of the FFF the climate has deteriorated. The management is taken to court by employees following the launch, in May, of a social plan aimed at saving 2 million euros in a budgetary context marked by the Covid-19 epidemic.
