Damien Comolli, who apostrophized the referees of the Nantes-Toulouse match, which resulted in a non-promotion for the Violets, was given four games of suspension (and two suspended) by the disciplinary commission of the LFP .
In a black anger, he had yelled at the arbitral trio at the end of the barrage of climb in Ligue 1 lost to FC Nantes. Damien Comolli, president of Toulouse FC, was suspended six games (including two suspended) on Wednesday during the meeting of the disciplinary committee of the Professional Football League. The manager will be deprived of a sideline, a referee’s cloakroom and any official functions during the time of the sanction.
Olivier Jaubert, general manager of the Toulouse club, was also penalized for his post-match behavior. The disciplinary committee imposed a two-game suspended suspension on him.
“You were scandalous!”
After the final whistle sealing the insufficient victory of Toulouse FC against FC Nantes (1-0), Damien Comolli went to the hallway leading to the locker room to curse Benoit Bastien and his assistants. “You stole the climb from us!” The president repeatedly proclaimed. Before adding: “How can you not give it to him ?! Outrageous, you were scandalous!”
A hand not whistled in the 81st minute seems to have caused the fury of Damien Comolli. The TFC was then leading 1-0 and needed a second goal to get its rise in Ligue 1.
