While the Disciplinary Commission of the LFP met yesterday, the high authority of French football looked into the case of the players to be suspended. The sanctions of Etienne Green as well as Sergi Palencia are now known. A blow for the Greens who will host the Girondins de Bordeaux this weekend.
It was to be expected, the Greens will have to do without Etienne Green. Once again excluded against Pau following an uncontrolled outing, the latter had allowed the Palois to take the advantage before being joined on the scoreboard by the Stéphanois and ending the game with a deserved draw ( 2-2). Already expelled during the debacle against Le Havre (0-6), the doorman of AS Saint-Etienne received a suspension of two firm matches by the Disciplinary Committee of the Professional Football League for his recurrence. A blow for Laurent Batlles who will have to do without his young goalkeeper at the dawn of facing the leader of the championship: the Girondins de Bordeaux. The last rampart of ASSE will also miss the trip of his teammates to the lawn of L’En Avant Guingamp. With 2 red cards received in the space of 7 short days, the goalkeeper of the doors of Geoffroy-Guichard is currently in first place in the ranking of expulsions at the start of the season. A very sad statistic for the player and the Forez club, still in difficulty with 4 points scored and 19th place in the general classification of Ligue 2 in the space of a few weeks. A suspension that could allow Mathieu Dreyer to take the place of doorman n°1 and shake up the hierarchy.
Palencia also suspended
Etienne Green is not the only one to have been sanctioned by the LFP. The Spanish right side Sergi Palencia will also miss the trip of his side to Roudourou. The LFP suspended the player following an accumulation of yellow cards since the start of the season (3 yellows in 7 games). The Stéphanois will therefore have to do without their two holders for the next deadlines.
