During a two-to-one interview for the team, Marcus Thuram and Lilian, his father, both returned to the episode of spitting which caused controversy and which upset the season of the French striker, called by Didier Deschamps to play the Euro with the Team of France. As a reminder, on December 19 during a championship match against Hoffenheim (1-2) Marcus Thuram was sent off at the end of the match for spitting on his opponent Stefan Posch. He was then sentenced to 5 suspension matches and a heavy fine of € 40,000. The Borussia striker Mönchengladbach made an astonishing mea-culpa, explaining regret his gesture but being somewhere relieved that he arrived.
“At the time, I was in the strongest period emotionally since I played football. I play well in the Champions League, I’m starting with the France team … Without knowing why, I’m starting to change, to no longer accept certain things. Like, “You aren’t going to talk to me like that.” When I make this gesture, I go straight into the locker room and I call Khephren, hoping he hasn’t seen the images. It took several days before I spoke to my father. At the risk of sounding weird, I think something has happened. Not the spit, nor the red card, of course. But without this event, maybe things would have gotten worse for me, I would have become a different person. It is a break of which I have assumed the consequences. Now I understand “, he explains to the French daily. His father said he did not want to go into too much detail about this gesture, but said he had a conversation with his son in order to reframe him.
