Chaumier: “Barça lend a great dignity to our game”

Edgar Fornós

France Football editor-in-chief Denis Chaumier is excited by the football Barça are playing and explained: “even though Zidane is with Madrid, I’d be lying if I didn’t say most French hearts are with Barça”.

Chaumier: “Barça lend a great dignity to our game”

“Anything can happen in football”
The France Fotball editor enjoyed a great night at the Stadium on Tuesday with Barça’s win over Arsenal and afterwards he reflected: “matches like Tuesday’s show that even when you dominate the game and create chances - even when you are ahead, anything can happen: with just a few minutes to play, Bendtner had the chance to score and that would have sent Barça out. That would have been completely unfair to me, but it makes you realise that in football, anything can happen”.
Denis Chaumier, who declared himself a Barça fan, was at the Ciutat Esportiva on Wednesday to present the Book of the 50 Years of the Ballon D’Or to the top three players in last year’s awards - Iniesta, Xavi and Messi. In an exclusive interview for Barca TV and, he explained: “Barça have a big following in France. The fans always do whatever they can to get to see them. Many French hearts are with Barça”.

“Barça are an example for all clubs

Right now Barça are an example for all clubs and they lend a great dignity to our game”.

The unique Barça style

2011-01-12_PARTIDO_27.JPGIt’s not just Barça’s results that are creating such an impression across the world, according to Chaumier: “the extraordinary thing about this team is the way they play. It’s hard to copy, because the standards in world football today are rather more concerned with physical strength, speed, ability to jump and so on, whilst Barça are completely different. That is what has made this team such a captivating and pleasing sight for so many fans across the globe. Barça have many advantages over their competition and I don’t think they can ever be copied”.

Hunger for titles

The hardest thing is always to stay at the top, more than to reach the heights, and that’s one more reason why Denis Chaumier admires Barça: “the best thing about Barça is that as well as offering fantastic football, they have been able to keep such a high level for so long. They never seem to tire of winning and that makes them almost invincible”.
