Vincent Moscato: “Love the jersey, it can’t be filled in the fridge”, the Moscato Show arrives in Montpellier

Vincent Moscato and his Super Moscato Show team arrive this Thursday at La Chistera, in Montpellier. Talking about rugby, but not only … Interview with the former host who was the host.

After almost two years at Covid, are you excited to see the trips and the public?

It’s always good to interact with the public. We never had real life spectators during the show, that’s good. Very nice. We can see the reactions, what matches or doesn’t match the show. I was surprised.

How do you explain the public’s connection to the show?

There is no recipe. It’s like a movie theater. You can have a good script, good actors, if people feel like they’re cheaters, that there’s no reality, it won’t go away. With us, there is this reliability. And legitimacy has to do with sport. We’re a multisport show, we’re talking about everything.

Is this pluralism your strength?

Yes. After a while, we just talked about football, we wandered around, no sparkle …

Will this show be useful for your one person show?

It could happen to me getting things for the show, or the opposite. There are paths. Nice show with one man. Being on boards is one of the best feelings you can have.

The guy who tells you he knows who’s going to win, he’s tough. In the end, they don’t bet the house of those who say that, they don’t bet 20 balls anymore …

Let’s talk rugby. How do you feel about the top 14 semi-finals?

I think it’s a hot fight. It is very wise who will say qualified. Well, I have a principle that, wherever I go, I will announce the city where I am the winner. That way, I’m not worried. But I wouldn’t put a ticket on a team. Maybe the Stade Toulousain but I’m not sure …

We have the impression that the Top 14 is very homogeneous.

We don’t know who will win… The Top 14 is the NFL. It became American football. Clubs have a structure with training centers, it’s like the one in the United States. The level of play whether you see the Bègles, the Stadium or Montpellier and Castres… The person who tells you he knows who will win, he is strong. In the end, they don’t bet the house of those who say that, they don’t bet 20 balls anymore …

“Usually, at this time, there is only happiness at the end of the season”

Do you have the impression that the presence of Castres or Montpellier is troublesome?

No, it’s paranoid, club thing. It always felt like they were against the world. After all, Stade Toulousain is more media friendly in terms of rugby than Montpellier, which was founded just thirty years ago, it is a football town. Toulouse have won 21 French championship titles, it’s not the same. Bordeaux attracts 30,000 people per game, and it has been playing rugby for 100 years. It is only normal that they are more informed than in Montpellier or Castres.

What do you think of Christophe Urios releasing his players?

This is a bit strange because usually at this time, there is only joy at the end of time, the end episodes. But these are the things that happen.

Have you ever played against him?

Yes. He is a good player, aggressive, natural leader. I’m not surprised he became a coach, he knew the game. He was hardworking and more.

Philippe has qualities everywhere! He can do what he wants, he’s good at RMC, at clubs

The run in Montpellier, will Philippe Saint-André also win?

Of course, last year they played at the bottom. This year, the title. So yes, it was his victory.

Is he the best coach or consultant at RMC?

He has qualities everywhere! He can do what he wants, he’s good at RMC, at clubs. He was a man who was not here at the time. He knows this game. (He is interrupted by a young woman who asks him for a place where he can sing…: “I don’t know, I’m not an impresario”). Philippe brings a lot of innovation to this club that goes hand in hand with each other. It no longer makes sense, a lack of knowledge in this game has a risky recruitment of South Africans. It didn’t work out and this club has recovered an identity that was lost and it’s thanks to Philippe.

What inspired Fulgence Ouedraogo to you?

There have always been cases like that, for example Antoine Burban who stayed at the Stade Français for 16 years. There is and always will be, even if it becomes more complicated. There are always exceptions. The love of the jersey still exists, if your contract is good. Love the jersey, it can’t fill the fridge.
