The coach of Olympique Lyonnais, Peter Bosz, returned to the media on the excesses that led to the final end of the match of the 14th day of Ligue 1 against Olympique de Marseille, last Sunday at Groupama Stadium.
Before the trip to Brondby on Thursday, counting for the 5th day of the group stage of the Europa League, the Dutch coach kept in the throat the incidents which caused the interruption of the meeting against the players of Jorge Sampaoli , after a Lyon supporter sent a bottle of water to Dimitri Payet.
“The group was obviously disappointed with what happened on Sunday. Things are as they are. The game is Thursday night and we’re here to win. I told the players to turn to this game right away. We had to train right away to prepare for this match. Honestly, it’s still difficult to accept. It’s a bad thing for French football. One person’s fault. The whole stadium was punished by one person. It’s incredible. My mother was there, she is 84 years old. And three minutes of play, it was over. It’s hard to accept ”, he launched in statements relayed on the official website of the club.
As a reminder, the Disciplinary Commission of the Professional Football League has sanctioned the Rhone club with a total closed door as a precaution, before making new decisions on December 8. The offender was sentenced to six months suspended prison sentence and five years of stadium ban.
