The Lyon midfielder was at a press conference this Friday. He particularly regretted the absence of sanctions following the incidents which occurred shortly before the Olympico, on October 29.
Incomprehension and annoyance. Olympique Lyonnais is very upset against the decision of the Professional Football League to reschedule the Olympico next Wednesday, December 6 at the Stade Vélodrome and with the public. Corentin Tolisso, who presented himself to journalists before the trip to the pitch at Stade Rennais this Sunday (5 p.m.), made it known: “I don’t understand the lack of sanction. It’s a decision that isn’t thought through. I don’t know if we realize that our coach almost lost an eye, I find it crazy that there is no sanction. I was really scared from inside the bus. What will happen when we go back? […] Who tells us this won’t happen again? Our coach almost lost an eye, what do we do if things get worse? What do we do if the windows are still broken?he protested to journalists. I am a father and I punish the children when they do stupid things. There they (in Marseille) did something stupid and they have no sanction. It is not logical. I don’t understand this decision.»
A boycott of Olympico envisaged?
To show their dissatisfaction, Les Gones could consider boycotting the meeting. At least that’s what the 2018 World Champion suggested: “We haven’t had time to talk about it, but maybe we’ll talk about it during the break. There is Rennes. […] It’s absurd not to have sanctions. What happens if a player loses an eye and ends his career?“, did he declare.
On October 29, the clash between Olympique de Marseille and Olympique Lyonnais was canceled after the Rhone bus was stoned, leading to the injury of Fabio Grosso and one of his istants. As a reminder, the Italian coach – who also expressed his annoyance this Friday at a press conference – was granted thirty days of total work interruption. Les Gones, who wanted to replay the match on neutral ground, appealed the LFP’s decision. To be continued.
