"They'll be there on December 15 or 16," Football Association president Noël Le Graët said on Saturday two-star jerseys of blues world champions, which are always hard to find in stores.
"They arrive by boat and the boat is running a bit slower than expected, so it's very late, but it will come," said the process manager on Saturday morning in Boulogne-Billancourt on the fringes of the FFF's federal assembly. Asked about the number of expected shirts, he asserted that there would be more than 2,000 in some media, but acknowledged that "it will not be extraordinary."
"It is not a big problem"
When asked about the Nike equipment manufacturer's responsibility, he replied, "It's a high quality partner, loyal, and if you look at the numbers, you can not get angry if you have a partner who has 50% of your trade budget accounts.
"I would have preferred to wear jerseys everywhere and not ask why they are late, but after all that's not a big problem," said the French footballer. "It is embarrassing for the kids who wanted to have them as Christmas gifts, but there will be a lot soon."
