While he announced his choice to play for Algeria, Houssem Aouar, who nevertheless has a selection with France, hit the headlines. Especially for his friends with regard to the tricolor jersey, “to be honest, after choosing the France team at the time, I felt regret. I felt that I had not made the choice that suited me personally”. Which did not take long to react.
This Friday, when he came into play against Nantes (1-1), Houssem Aouar not only suffered whistles to which he is now accustomed, but also a Marseillaise intoned by his supporters.
If this strong gesture, in particular Bad Gones, is almost a declaration of war, it was considered racist by many people on Twitter. At the end of the match, Aouar hastened to join the locker room without greeting the stands.
