A door of anger burst, Alvaro Gonzalez appeared particularly up in the locker room, Sunday during the interruption of the match between OL and OM. Substitute at the kick-off, the Spanish defender did not seem to digest the very long hesitation of the decision-makers on the resumption of the match, or not, after the bottle was thrown on Dimitri Payet after only two minutes of play. The surveillance cameras showed him knocking forcefully on a swinging door. The Spaniard also cursed several people in the tunnel to express his incomprehension, under the eyes of Jean-Michel Aulas, in particular.

The Professional Football League (LFP) and the prefecture of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and Rhône then communicated through the media to discharge their responsibilities, giving rise to great confusion.
