He was one of the attractions of the charity match between the Variété Club de France and a team of caregivers. A great football fan and OM fan, Emmanuel Macron was invited to take part, this Thursday, in this meeting at the Léo-Lagrange stadium (Poissy) and even offered himself the luxury of scoring a goal … on penalty.
With the number 3 flocked on the back, the President of the Republic was aligned in the midfield alongside the former OM and OL coach Rudi Garcia. Rather relaxed, he did quite well and was quite active. And if he was at the heart of all the curiosities, he distinguished himself by finding the net, well helped by the opposing goalkeeper.
After a foul in the penalty area, former Brazilian striker Sonny Anderson naturally turned to the head of state to give him the ball. Smiling and amused, he did so to change the sentence as best he could, as his weak shot was grazed by the porter’s legs.

After his goal, which allowed the Variety to equalize (1-1), he was congratulated by Marcel Desailly, Laure Bouleau or even Karl Olive, mayor of Poissy on the initiative of his arrival. Emmanuel Macron then moved back a notch to move into central defense with Christian Karembeu.
All the profits from this match between the Variété Club de France and the carers of the intercommunal hospital center of Poissy Saint-Germain-en-Laye will be donated to the Fondation Hôpitaux de Paris-Hôpitaux de France, chaired by Brigitte Macron within the framework of of the “Yellow Pieces” operation.
