Three days after the end of the chaotic match between Monaco and OL (2-3), marked by a general fight, the disciplinary committee of the LFP communicated on Wednesday. The sanctions have fallen.
The Monaco-OL affair gave rise to sanctions. The disciplinary committee of the Professional Football League has announced its verdict concerning the general fight that took place at the end of the match between Monegasques and Lyonnais (2-3), Sunday, at the Louis-II stadium, at the end of the 35th day of Ligue 1.
The meeting ended in utter confusion, with clashes and provocations on both sides. Referee Clément Turpin ended up sending four red cards to try to calm everyone down: to Willem Geubbels and Pietro Pellegri (Monaco), but also Mattia De Sciglio and Marcelo (OL).
Geubbels receives a three-game suspension, his teammate Pellegri takes two. Marcelo takes only one match, automatic after a red card, the same for De Sciglio and Maxence Caqueret (excluded during the meeting).
Monaco replied to OL
“The provocation comes from them, it is abnormal that we took red cards when we did nothing, we did not even retaliate,” Rudi Garcia was indignant. Same annoyance on the side of Jean-Michel Aulas: “We had no reason to be attacked at the end of the match. There are the two kids from Monaco who came to attack us. Geubbels should be careful. Marcelo and De Sciglio have We have no more players for Lorient, with Depay and Caqueret suspended, but also Denayer injured. We find ourselves unhappy when we have nothing to do with it. “
Niko Kovac had refuted these accusations, while calling on his players to “learn from their mistakes”. Monaco deplored “the inappropriate and inappropriate statements made by the representatives of the OL”. “Moreover, the term” aggression “having been used on several occasions in recent days by representatives from Lyon to characterize the attitude of AS Monaco players, it seems appropriate to recall these facts: the injury and the unavailability of Sofiane Diop since the Coupe de France match following a tackle from De Sciglio; Caio Henrique’s exit from the field on Sunday evening, hard hit and forced to give up his place, “replied the ASM in a statement.
The Canal + cameras had also captured another moment of tension. After Rayan Cherki’s goal, synonymous with victory for the Gones, Bruno Guimaraes had addressed a finger of honor towards the edge of the field or the stands.
