On one side Pierre Micheau, the outgoing president. On the other, Pascal Riou, his opponent. Both candidates for the presidency of the Aude football district. An election which comes more than a year after the resignation of seven members of the steering committee and a commission president within the institution. At the time, these rebels denounced the financial management of President Pierre Micheau. In particular: reimbursement costs for the president’s activity which rose to €14,961.50 for the 2021-2022 financial year, and “a salary of the president, which is a hardship allowance, of €14,948 gross”.

According to Pascal Riou from the list “Succeed together – Aude football above all”, Pierre Micheau’s results are “catastrophic”. He points “disastrous management”. “I didn’t even imagine that a District could be managed this way. Lack of consultation with elected officials, unilateral governance…”

Offer simplicity, cultivate open-mindedness

Pierre Micheau’s intention? “Continuity and consolidation of our actions for a quality district. Continue modernization, where some advocate a return to the past, to old practices, which lacked transparency and efficiency.” Pascal Riou’s objective: “Establish a democracy. Listen to the clubs. Restore confidence. Bring together the driving forces. Work with the clubs in co-construction. The clubs must be the main actors in the evolution of Audois football. Bring transparency. Be fair . Ease tensions, bring kindness. Bring enthusiasm.
