Olivier Pickeu will have to stay in the stands for more than a month. The president of Stade Malherbe Caen was sanctioned by the Disciplinary Committee of the Professional Football League (LFP) this Wednesday evening. We him blame his behavior at halftime of the Ligue 2 match between Caen and Amiens (3-1), last Saturday. The boss of the red and blue club went to tell the refereeing body what he thought of their decisions taken in the first period, in particular the penalty whistled for a handball by Romain Thomas (rejected by Norman goalkeeper Anthony Mandrea) and the forgotten penalty, according to the weed leaders, in an action which followed this fact of play.
Suspended until October 22
The disciplinary body of professional football had a heavy hand against Olivier Pickeu. She decided to suspend him 4 games, including 2 by revocation of suspended sentence. The penalty takes effect immediately. The president of the SMC is thus banned from the sidelines, from the referees’ locker room and from all official functions until October 22 and the reception of Rodez at the Michel d’Ornano stadium on behalf of the 13th day of the French championship of League 2.
