Adil Rami sacked by Marseille after skipping training to feature on Fort Boyard


Last summer, Adil Rami was part of France’s World Cup-winning squad in Russia.

The defender may not have featured during the tournament but, the fact is, he’s a World Cup winner.

While Rami will never forget the summer of 2018 for all the right reasons, he’ll never forget the summer of 2019 for all the wrong reasons.

On June 25, he was dumped by Baywatch star Pamela Anderson, being branded a “monster” on Instagram.

And now, the 33-year-old has been sacked by Marseille.

According to L’Equipe, Rami has been dismissed by the Ligue 1 club after he skipped training to compete in the TV show Fort Board, where he got involved in a mud-wrestling battle.

The incident occurred on May 20, two days after a win against Toulouse in which Rami was injured.

The Frenchman was due to report to training as usual but instead starred in the game show, Fort Boyard despite still carrying a knock.

At the time, Marseille were unaware of his appearance in the episode. That was until it aired on TV on June 29. The club reacted by telling Rami not to report for pre-season duty.

But now, after consulting with lawyers, the club have found grounds to sack Rami for serious misconduct.

It completes a miserable six weeks for the former Lille, Valencia, Milan and Sevilla man.


He was publicly shamed by Anderson, who he shares twins with, on social media after a two-year relationship.

Anderson posted a black and white picture of them smiling together with a lengthy caption which included: "I’m glad I spoke to his ex. My God. He lied to her about all too. She's also in shock and is very sad.

"I'm devastated to find out in the last few days.

"He used to joke about other players who had girlfriends down the street in apartments close to their wives.

"He called those men monsters... He is the monster."

No girlfriend and no football club in the space of a few weeks.
