For bringing up climate change into French football and starting acting on it

The FC Nantes football players decided to go to Paris by train and return by bus, rather than two trips by plane. ⚽️
It doesn't seem much, but it is. At a time when PSG player Mbappé laughs at the idea of not taking a private jet to go to his football games, when the latest World Cup was such an environmental disaster, it is refreshing to see that some people in the football world actually care about our planet.
FC Nantes' coach Antoine Kombouaré also used his speaking time during the press conference to highlight the effects of climate change:
"At home, I am concerned, my family is concerned. I come from New Caledonia, in the Pacific. For a while now we have been talking about global warming, rising sea levels, there are many islands that will disappear".
This is great to see the football world starting to care about climate change and our planet, take action and speak up!

                Football players live a lavish life and most a times a danger to the climate, congratulations to Nantes coach and players for choosing a different path.
