New episode in "the affair of the recipe". After regretting that OM do not leave their share after the 32nd finals of the Coupe de France, Trélissac published a new press release this Monday morning in reaction to the justification of the Marseillais on their decision.
The Marseille club had assumed that it was "probably one of the two or three Ligue 1 clubs which contributes the most financially to the development of amateur football thanks in particular to its 'OM Next Generation' program or to the various actions of its foundation", while adding that the reception conditions (a 13,000-seat stadium and high ticket prices) did not make it a "rural" environment.
A touch of irony against OM
An argument that did not convince the Dordogne club. Trélissac therefore submitted a proposal to the OM, by the voice of its president, Fabrice Faure. "The Trélissac Football Club offers Olympique de Marseille, to be in line with its values of support for small amateur clubs, to donate its share of the proceeds to the Dordogne Football District, an organization managed by volunteers, serving the amateur football in rural areas, of which the Trélissac Football Club is a part. "
Invited to RMC Sport on Sunday, Fabrice Faure had estimated the amount of money that OM could have left at Trélissac at around 81,000 euros. "OM's share is 141,000 euros. They had 60,000 euros in travel expenses," he said. In the Coupe de France, tradition has it that, when there is a poster between professional and amateur clubs, the big ones leave their share of the proceeds to the little ones. But nothing forces them to do so.
