Lilian Thuram’s unbelief in seeing son Marcus spit in the face of a Bundesliga opponent was exposed by him.
After spitting at a Hoffenheim player, Marcus Thuram was fined and suspended, and his famous father was shocked by the incident.
It was not a deliberate act, he insisted but apologized to Posch, and Thuram had some reasons to do with his famous father, winner of the World Cup and European Championship with France.
Speaking to RCI Guadeloupe, Lilian Thuram said: “It’s completely understanding what is happening in the media. I myself was watching the match, I was extremely shocked.”
“I even asked myself the question of whether that was really my son.”
“Afterwards, I had his explanation, which is to say that he was raging with anger, and so he insulted the opponent and without actually doing it on purpose, he had saliva which came out.”
“What he wants is for people to remember that it’s unintentional because he says himself, ‘But Dad, I wouldn’t want people to think I’m capable of spitting on someone on purpose because it doesn’t make sense’.”
