After reviewing the images of the scandalous meeting between PSG and Olympique de Marseille, the Argentine was sanctioned for attacking the Spanish Alvaro González. And there may still be more punishments.
The French Professional Football League (LFP) imposed this Wednesday four suspension matches for the Argentine footballer Ángel Di María by spitting on the Spanish Álvaro González during the classic that ended in scandal between Paris Saint Germain and Olympique de Marseille played on September 13 by Ligue1.
In the decision published on its website, the LFP’s discipline commission justified the sanction to Di María, which will be applied as of next day 29, for the “behavior” of the Argentine in the match that his team lost 1-0.
“The sanction is tough and difficult, as we are not going to play during the week it becomes even longer. What I did I did because of a reaction and because on the other side there were some words that I did not like. Álvaro’s sanction is still under investigation. , there are images that show something, surely he will also be sanctioned “, said Fideo in declarations to Closs Continental.
In a first report the sanctions for the five footballers who had been expelled in a scandalous closing of the meeting came out, but then images were released in which a spitting of Di María to González was perceived by what the Argentine, who after the classic followed playing for PSG and even scored a goal in the match against Nice last Sunday, now he receives his punishment.
The bad news is added to the surprising absence from the list of summoned by Lionel Scaloni for the start of the Argentine National Team in the South American Qualifiers.
But things will not stop there. The members of the commission will continue with the investigation of the incidents and at their next meeting on September 30, they will examine the behavior of Álvaro González and Neymar.
It is about clarifying the allegations of the Brazilian crack, who accuses the Spanish player of having attacked him with racist insults, specifically, he claims that the defender told him “Monkey son of a bitch.”
Neymar, meanwhile, has already been sanctioned with two suspension matches for slapping González. Although the penalty could be increased if they find revealing scenes when they revisit the ruling. From Marseille they affirm that the club has elements that incriminated the PSG player, who would have verbally attacked the Japanese Hiroki Sakai calling him “Chinese shit”.
The disciplinary regulations of the Federation contemplate up to ten suspension matches for “racist or discriminatory behavior.”
The discipline commission has already applied harsher punishments to France’s Layvin Kurzawa (PSG, six games) and Jordan Amavi (OM, three games) for their mutual aggression during the match that ended with five sent off.
In addition, Argentines and former Boca players Leandro Paredes (PSG) and Darío Benedetto (OM) were sanctioned with three suspension dates and one day, respectively.
