OL would refuse to play on the damaged lawn of Moustoir in Lorient

LE SCAN SPORT – While OL are due to travel to Brittany on Sunday to face Lorient in Ligue 1, the Rhone club considers the condition of the Moustoir lawn to be in too poor condition.

After a hard-fought success against Ajaccio (2-1) on the first day of Ligue 1, Olympique Lyonnais must land in Brittany on Sunday to face FC Lorient at the Stade du Moustoir (1:00 p.m.).

Nevertheless, the Lyon management expressed their concerns about the current deterioration of the lawn damaged by the drought and the Interceltic Festival of Lorient which will end on Thursday.

“We will see what the league tells us, but our position is not to play the match under these conditions. It can endanger the physical integrity of the players. then affirmed the Rhone club in the columns of the Progress .

The LFP has received the complaints from the Lyonnais and should communicate in the coming hours. FC Lorient, through its general manager Arnaud Tanguy, has confirmed the current deplorable state of the Hake lawn. The Breton club nevertheless affirmed that no fallback solution was possible outside of Moustoir.

Considered for a long time, the inversion hypothesis is not being studied today. This option would force OL into significant logistical and management constraints related to security, ticketing and other overlapping schedules.
