Le journaliste Jacques Ferran, cofondateur de la Coupe d'Europe et du Ballon d'Or

L’ancien journaliste de L’Équipe et de France Football Jacques Ferran est mort ce jeudi, à l’âge de 98 ans. Il avait notamment participé à la création de la Coupe d’Europe en 1955 et du Ballon d’Or en 1956.

Notre illustre confrère Jacques Ferran est mort ce jeudi à l’âge de 98 ans. Entré à L’Équipe en 1948, il a notamment fait partie de la petite équipe qui créa, en 1955, la Coupe d’Europe, devenue aujourd’hui la Ligue des champions. Il rédigea d’ailleurs le premier règlement de l’épreuve. L’année suivante, en 1956, il est aussi à l’origine de la création du Ballon d’Or-France Football, récompensant alors le meilleur joueur européen.

Au long de sa brillante carrière, aussi bien au sein de L’Équipe, dont il fut rédacteur en chef, que de France Football, il côtoya les plus grands, de Pelé à Platini, en passant par Cruyff. Il prit sa retraite en 1985. L’Équipe présente ses condoléances émues à sa famille.
