After his yellow card against Montpellier, Neymar is suspended for the final of the Coupe de France.
As revealed by RMC Sport on Thursday, the federal disciplinary commission delivers its decision on the Neymar case this Friday. Unsurprisingly, the Brazilian star receives a new suspension after his yellow card received at the end of the match against Montpellier (1-1 TAB 6-5) in the semi-final of the Coupe de France. Problem, a strategic choice arises in front of him: enter the CNOSF before or after Sunday’s championship match against Reims. Explanations. Such an appeal could suspend his sanction and allow him to play the final, as was the case for Di Sciglio, penalized by a red card after the fight at the end of Monaco-Lyon and who had appealed.
To make this official referral, the player must first have the decision of the disciplinary committee. He then has 15 days to get closer to the CNOSF. If this is the case, the main interested party is obliged to send a request to the Olympic Committee. If this request is deemed admissible, in this specific case Neymar will come within the framework of the constitution. The Paris Saint-Germain striker then finds himself summoned to a conciliation organized by video.
Priority to the championship?
In case number 1: PSG want to have Neymar for the final of the Coupe de France. From the sending of the summons to the club and the FFF, the player’s suspension is blocked. The Brazilian can, for his part, make this referral today. He finds himself automatically “immune” while awaiting the choice of the commission. According to a source close to the conciliation commission, a decision can then be rendered within 24 hours. The striker of the Club de la Capitale can therefore even afford to wait the day before the final to start this procedure. He also offers himself the possibility of waiting for the results of Sunday.
In case number 2: PSG decides to prioritize the championship. Neymar can do without an immediate procedure with the CNOSF. There would therefore be no urgency. The “Ney” would give himself time to later consider playing the championship match next Sunday in Brest.
