Default DC- Guy Forget vs FFT (9/02/04)

Tennis: climat de tensions entre Guy Forget et la Fédération

PARIS (Reuters) - Dimanche, après la victoire de la France sur la Croatie, au premier tour de la Coupe Davis, le capitaine de l'équipe de France avait poussé un coup de gueule, dénonçant notamment les "manigances" de plus en plus nombreuses.


A chaud, la FFT n'avait pas souhaité s'exprimer et a préféré attendre 24 heures pour répondre.


"Concernant les attaques injustifiées lancées à l'issue de la rencontre par le capitaine, contre les dirigeants fédéraux, le président de la FFT s'est déclaré surpris et déçu", précise le communiqué.


"Il a néanmoins précisé qu'il ne souhaitait pas polémiquer et que, bien évidemmment, tous les élus et les présidents de Ligue présents à Metz, avaient soutenu et encouragé les Français en espérant leur victoire."


Guy Forget avait dénoncé une certaine pression sur son staff et lui, regrettant d'avoir vu certains dirigeants rester bras croisés à l'heure de la victoire sur la Croatie.


AUCUN CONTRAT ENTRE FORGET ET LA FFT


"Je suis remonté car je n'aime pas les polémiques. Quand on vit ce que l'on a vécu en Coupe Davis et que je sens des gens de la même famille qui complotent, que des gens viennent me dire que si ça se passe mal, ils seront derrière moi, je me pose des questions. Moi, je défends un idéal", avait-il déclaré.


"J'ai senti monter une pression, un truc, et je ne veux pas laisser passer cela. Si on ne gagnait pas cette rencontre, il n'y avait qu'un responsable : ma pomme. Et ce malgré mes résultats passés. Et ça, ça me met en rogne."


Guy Forget avait également regretté la politique fédérale en matière sportive, qui vise entre autres à réduire le budget de la direction technique nationale.


"Parfois, je ne partage pas les idées de certaines personnes et je le fais savoir. Ce qui se passe à la Fédération au niveau sportif me pose problème. Il y a une campagne de déstabilisation contre moi, contre Jean-Claude Massias (le directeur technique national) et contre tous ceux qui sont sur le terrain", avait-il poursuivi.


Guy Forget - dont le cas sera donc étudié vendredi, à la veille de l'Assemblée générale de la FFT - n'est lié par aucun contrat avec la FFT. Ses rémunérations sont calculées sur un pourcentage des recettes générés par la Coupe Davis (victoire en 2001, finale en 1999 et 2002) et la Fed Cup (victoire en 2003).


Agé de 39 ans, il est arrivé à ce poste de capitaine des équipes masculine et féminine en 1999

Default Re: DC- Guy Forget vs FFT

i hope i've translated this right
i'm a little confused coz i didnt know nething about this but he's not a happy man!

Tension between Guy Forget and the FFT
Sunday after the France's victory over Croatia in the first round of DC, the French team captain said that there was scheming going on (by the fft) against him and there was an unfair amount of pressure placed on his shoulders.

The FFT took 24 hours to respond to the accusation.

"Concerning the injustified attacks thrown by Guy Forget against the the federation, the president was both surprised and disapointed. He has nevertheless said that he didn't want to debate this and obviously, everyone from the federation who were present in Metz were there to support and encourage the French."

Guy Forget had stated that he felt there was too much pressure on him and the members of the team, and said he was sorry to see that members of the federation had their arms crossed during the victory over Croatia.

NO CONTRACT BETWEEN FORGET AND THE FFT
"I dont like arguing. When you see what happened last weekend during the Davis Cup i felt that when people came to me and said they would be behind me if we lost the tie, i didnt know what to believe. I felt a certain pressure, something, i don't know what it was. If we didn't win that tie, i know there was one person who would be blamed and one person only. And despite my past results we have achieved with the team, in the end i know it wouldn't mean anything.


Guy Forget was also unhappy about the reduction of the federal budget for sport.

"Sometimes i dont share my ideas about some people. But i had a problem with what was happening at the Federation. There was a campain against me to remove me as captain, also against Jean-Claude Massias (director) and also those who are playing."

Guy Forget - whose case will be investigated on Friday, the day before the general assembly of the FFT, won't be supported by any existing contract he holds with the FFT. His renumerations are calculated by a percentage of takings from DC (victory en 2001, final in 1999 and 2002) and the Fed Cup (victory in 2003).

At 39 years of age, he became the captain of both the male and female teams in 1999.

thx esther for the translation!!!

where there are people there's politics, what can one do... if there's one dc captain that should be fired, it should be our dear aussie captain fitzy. he should've seen that our flip was in no mood to play

Quote:

rightly so, and fitzy should've been fired many times already. (sorry for venting my anger here!)

at least arnaud and co won this controversial first round for france and for guy...

everyone is against fabrice, so it is not logically possible that everyone is also against guy.... or is it? lol..... it's getting too hard !!

it's really a team that has been winning dc for france, so it is not a good sign if there's so much in-fighting now.

FFT asks Guy to shut up...here you can read it by urself.

Le bureau fédéral réagit aux propos de Forget

(13/02 - 20h00) - Le bureau fédéral s'est réuni à Roland-Garros ce vendredi 13 février et a réagi via un communiqué aux déclarations de Guy Forget après le premier tour de Coupe Davis France-Croatie.

"Après avoir déploré les déclarations du capitaine de l'équipe de France de Coupe Davis à l'issue de la rencontre France-Croatie, le Bureau fédéral, réuni le vendredi 13 février à Roland-Garros, demande à l'unanimité au capitaine de respecter à l'avenir un devoir de réserve et de limiter exclusivement ses interventions à la mission qui lui a été confiée.
Cette prise de position devrait mettre un terme à cette regrettable situation."

...and Bimes will finish like Louis 16... I'm sure he won't be re-elected anymore...lol

Article Le Parisien

Bimes réduit Forget au silence



FROID comme un communiqué. Vers 20 h 30, hier soir, Guy Forget, présent à l'Open Gaz de France, a pris connaissance de la décision du bureau fédéral, réuni sous la présidence de Christian Bimes. Le texte remis par les instances est d'une extrême sécheresse : « Après avoir déploré les déclarations du capitaine de l'équipe de France de Coupe Davis à l'issue de la rencontre France - Croatie, le bureau fédéral, réuni à Roland-Garros, demande à l'unanimité au capitaine de respecter à l'avenir un devoir de réserve et de limiter exclusivement ses interventions à la mission qui lui a été confiée.
Cette prise de position devrait mettre un terme à cette regrettable situation. »
On est loin de l'épilogue de cette passe d'armes Forget s'est alors retranché dans une salle du stade Pierre-de-Coubertin, le téléphone collé à l'oreille. Il a ensuite fait savoir qu'il ne souhaitait pas s'exprimer. Mais, de toute évidence, on est loin, très loin, de l'épilogue de cette passe d'armes, entamée dimanche dernier après la qualification de l'équipe de France de Coupe Davis. Dans l'euphorie de la victoire, Forget s'en était pris, sans le nommer, au président de la Fédération, coupable selon lui d'avoir reçu Santoro dans son dos et, plus grave, de mener une politique plus axée sur le prestige (extension de Roland-Garros) que sur le secteur sportif. « Il y a des gens qui souhaitaient notre défaite, avait insisté Forget. Je trouve cela très grave. On n'a pas le droit de toucher à l'équipe de France. C'est sacré. Les trois quarts des élus (NDLR : de la fédération) font un boulot fabuleux. Mais il y en a d'autres qui étaient prêts à me dégommer en cas de défaite. » Pourquoi, au fond, en voudrait-on à Forget ? Pour les partisans de Christian Bimes, il représente très clairement le clan d'en face (avec Noah et probablement Proisy), dans la perspective des prochaines élections à la présidence de la FFT, en février 2005. Dès aujourd'hui, l'affaire pourrait connaître des rebondissements, à l'occasion de l'assemblée générale de la Fédération, où sont réunis tous les présidents de ligues ainsi que des représentants des joueurs. Ces derniers soutiennent Forget dans leur immense majorité. Hier, il a été décidé que cette réunion se tiendrait à huis clos. Bonjour l'ambiance...

I'm LOLing at the revolutionary talk (Not that I agreed with Guy's choices for this tie...I was not a happy bunny)

Via - come sit beside me! I could talk for a week about how rubbish Fitzy is.
