Ligue 1 resumes its rights on Friday and Olympique de Marseille will host Bordeaux on Saturday evening (9 p.m.), on the occasion of the 7th day. A shock that the Marseille club will play without Dimitri Payet, who had received two games of suspension plus one suspended after his dangerous gesture against Léo Dubois before the truce. A decision that André Villas-Boas is far from having digested. “We thought of calling on the CNOSF,” revealed the Marseille coach at a press conference. The problem is, this is considered serious misconduct so there is little chance to appeal. In comparison to other cases this season – Girotto, Aouar – which were aggressive, for me it is abused. Looks like Payet is still in the sights of the League Disciplinary Committee, and I find that worrying “.
Villas-Boas: “Payet always pays for others”
Strong words from AVB, which did not stop there. “Already, in France, there are too many red cards all the time. There is a suspension for three yellows so the best players are never on the pitch. It is true that the images of the action are harsh but Payet does not intend to hurt Dubois. Two games plus one suspended sentence is overkill. I’m sorry for him, we decided not to appeal. It’s hard for him, it looks like he always pays for others “. Words a bit exaggerated given the dangerousness of Payet’s intervention.
