Football Ligue 1 – OL-OM incidents: Marseille and Longoria frontally accused!


The disciplinary committee of the LFP has delivered its verdict but the revelations continue on the incidents of the OL-OM match.

Wednesday evening, Jacques Cardoze, director of communication for Olympique de Marseille, protested against the choice of the LFP disciplinary committee not to invite the Marseille club to the hearing. The right-hand man of Pablo Longoria was scandalized to see that the OL of Jean-Michel Aulas and Vincent Ponsot could defend themselves without any counter-argument being able to be brought by the OM, victim in this affair with the jet of bottle in Dimitri Payet’s face in the fourth minute of the match at Groupama Stadium. In its edition of the day, Le Progrès, however, tries to bring a little nuance by affirming that the Olympique de Marseille was not white as snow on November 21. The Rhone daily explains, for example, that members of the Marseille delegation have voluntarily condemned certain cameras in the locker rooms.

Longoria accused of putting pressure on the referee

Regarding the pressure put on the referee, again it was Lyon who passed for the culprit since Jean-Michel Aulas was accused of having threatened Ruddy Buquet. But still according to Le Progrès, the management of Olympique de Marseille was not left out on this subject. For example, it is explained that Pablo Longoria was the first to arrive at the security headquarters, before his Lyon counterpart Jean-Michel Aulas. At this time of the evening, the Spanish leader of OM would also have put pressure on the referee as well as the authorities so that the meeting is definitively stopped. Likewise, when Ruddy Buquet considered a resumption of the match, Jorge Sampaoli or Alvaro Gonzalez would have been particularly virulent in front of their locker room. Suffice to say that this evening of November 21 has not yet revealed all its secrets and that the revelations could continue to rain in the weeks to come. Especially since OM strongly plans to appeal the decision of the disciplinary committee of the LFP, which condemned OL to a firm point and which gave the match to replay in Lyon.
