It is this Wednesday evening that Gelson Martin will know what the disciplinary committee of the LFP reserves for him following his inadmissible gesture on the referee of Nîmes-Monaco. For the boss of the FFF, you have to type hard and hard.
Gelson Martins may have apologized after hustling M.Lesage, referee of the match lost by Monaco to Nîmes, last Saturday, the Portuguese striker of ASM is well aware that he risks big before the disciplinary committee of the LFP this Wednesday evening. Expelled for his gesture of nervousness following a first red card inflicted on Tiémoué Bakayoko, Gelson Martins faces several months of suspension.
And if the AS Monaco player reads the words of Noël Le Graët on Wednesday on the FFF website, he will not be reassured. In a statement, the boss of the French Football Federation demands the utmost severity in this kind of story. ” If the number of incidents on professional football fields has been generally stable since the start of the season, and the number of shots struck has dropped quite sharply, we must deplore the increase in the number of unacceptable violent assaults against officials, both professional and amateur. I would thus like to remind all football players of their duty of respect and exemplarity, which is essential with regard to the referees. All attacks on arbitrators must be firmly punished according to the disciplinary scales and by legal actions alongside the victims for the most serious cases “Warns Noël Le Graët in a press release.
