Longoria is angry this Thursday
Eric Bailly will probably have to take his troubles patiently to find the rhythm. While the central defender of Olympique de Marseille, hampered by injuries since the start of the season, was counting on the second part of the exercise to perk up and finally chain the matches, bad news fell for him on Thursday .
A very heavy suspension
As announced by the regional daily La Provence, very well informed about the news of the Marseille club, the Disciplinary Committee of the French Football Federation imposed a 7-game suspension on the 28-year-old player for his dangerous gesture during the 32nd finals. of the Coupe de France against Hyres (2-0), on January 7!
The Ivorian international had to leave his partners in the 15th minute for an involuntary kick on the chest of Moussa N’Diaye. The Var player, forced to be hospitalized, suffered from a broken rib, a liver injury and internal bleeding. This explains the importance of the sanction. It could even have been higher (8 or 9 games), but the commission took into account the good behavior of the Olympian and his absence of a record, according to the newspaper.
Longoria angry to learn the sanction by the press
Since confirmed by AFP, from sources familiar with the case, this information had not been announced to OM before it was released in the press. This angered Marseille President Pablo Longoria. If our player is really suspended for 7 games, it would above all be very serious if some people leaked this decision to the press without even bothering to notify the sanction and warn the club concerned. It’s a lack of respect launched the Spaniard, joined by RMC.
The player loaned by Manchester United will therefore have to serve another 5 suspension games. Suspended against Troyes (2-0) and Lorient (3-1), he will miss the round of 16 of the Coupe de France against Rennes as well as the next league matches against Monaco, Nantes, Nice and Clermont.
