The former French striker has also called for the greatest severity, whether with regard to the offender or the club. “If you sanction the individual, he feels concerned. Points also speak to me. You have to be severe in all cases. But let’s not forget the individual and let’s be very severe with him ”, he continued, taking the example of what is done across the Channel: “In England you are suspended for life. It’s not a month, six months. That’s life. It changes the game. »

It’s really a bullshit hat-trick ”, he continued, saying he was “shocked” by the attitude of the Lyon public towards Dimitri Payet beyond the bottle throw. « You take a hit and we insult you on top of that, when you haven’t done anything. Just because you played in Saint-Etienne ”, he regretted, disillusioned by his evening in Lyon.
