Ilie Năstase: “Sarkozy is Doing Right”

Romanian former tennis player Ilie Năstase surprised his country – and the rest of the EU – by unexpectedly announcing his support for the French President’s policy regarding the Gipsy repatriations, in an interview. “Sarkozy is defending his own citizens. I myself would not be happy if someone came, pitched a tent outside my home and started to beg or to rob”, said Ilie Năstase.

He is one of the three Romanian sports stars that are now part of a media plan to mend Romania’s image abroad, alongside with Gheorghe Hagi and Nadia Comăneci. “If I were president of Romania, I’d send them to Harghita. The Gipsy problem should be solved here, in Romania, not in France or elsewhere. Even I, when I go to Paris, have to walk with my hands in my pockets because of them. They are now growing beards, trying to look Muslim, they are smart”, added Ilie Năstase.
