According to’AFP, the Higher Appeal Commission of the Federation (FFF) ruled the appeal “inadmissible“because OM was”not concerned“by the initial disciplinary sanctions, according to a source with knowledge of the file. The OM had requested, in a document sent to the disciplinary committee of the LFP and whose‘AFP has had knowledge, a sentence “obviously greater than two points, one of which is suspended, the loss of points being inevitable“. The management of the Marseille club also hoped to win the match on the green carpet. Last recourse for OM: the French National Olympic and Sports Committee (CNOSF), empowered to try to reconcile the two parties. OL, defender of the thesis of “the individual and isolated act“, also regretted in a press release “a very heavy sanction”, but had not appealed to the FFF.
