The Nantes striker is one of the players who refused to wear the rainbow flocked jersey this weekend as part of the fight against homophobia.
The 35th day of Ligue 1 was marked by the lively controversy sparked by certain players by refusing to wear a jersey with rainbow flocking intended to show their support for the fight against homophobia.
On the move to Toulouse, FC Nantes had to do without Mostafa Mohamed, absent from the match sheet due to his refusal. A clear-cut position to which the Egyptian striker returned in a message posted on Twitter.
“I didn’t take part in the Toulouse – Nantes match today. I don’t want to argue at all but I have to state my position. Respect for differences would mean respect for others, respect for oneself, respect for what will be shared and what will remain different. I respect all differences. I respect all beliefs and convictions, he thus wrote. This respect extends to others but also includes respect for my personal beliefs. Given my roots, my culture, the importance of my convictions and beliefs, it was not possible for me to participate in this campaign. I hope that my decision will be respected, as well as my wish not to argue about this and that everyone is treated with respect. »
