Guest of Rothen ignites on RMC this Wednesday, Laurent Tapie spoke about the series “Tapie”, online since this Wednesday on Netflix. The opportunity for the son of the former president of OM to make a few rants.
For football lovers, this is undoubtedly the most anticipated Netflix release of this school year. Since this Wednesday, the “Tapie” series, which retraces the journey of Bernard Tapie, has been available. As for several weeks, the family of the former president of OM continues to deplore the liberties which would have been taken by the screenwriters to tell the life of the “Boss”, who died in October 2021.
“It’s a fiction. That’s what I find unfortunate, because my father’s life was so rich that why go and invent stories when there was plenty of material to make this high-quality episode in reality alone?” , lamented Laurent Tapie in the show Rothen s’igné this Wednesday on RMC.
“People who don’t know football will watch the series and say ‘oh look, have you seen what he does?'”
“The football part? Pfff (he breathes)… It’s not great, continued Laurent Tapie. Here again, there were plenty of situations or anecdotes which were good. The pre-match speech, that’s not “That’s not really what I saw in reality, it’s a bit cliché. Besides, my father didn’t really believe in group speeches. He did individual things and that’s not translated into the series.”
For the writers of the series, it is impossible to tell the story of Bernard Tapie’s time at the head of OM without highlighting his excesses, between destabilization, shocking speeches and intimidation.
“People who don’t know football will watch the series and say ‘oh look have you seen what he does?’ Why was he destabilizing or something like that? Because we experienced it to our detriment too! When he lost in the semi-final (of the 1990 Champions League) against Benfica on a hand goal that all of the 100,000 spectators saw it and said “I understand.”, continued Laurent Tapie in Rothen s’enflamme, while recognizing that the VA-OM episode is well described in the series. “I have nothing to say about this passage, it is very well done.”
