The LFP could decide to strike hard. Very strong. After the invasion of the field and the violent incidents which caused the stop of the match between Nice and Marseille, the disciplinary commission of the LFP summoned, Wednesday, the two clubs which incur heavy sanctions.
The meeting degenerated at the 75e minute when Dimitri Payet was the target of projectiles from the Nice ultras. Hit in the back, the Marseille n ° 10 replied by returning the bottles to the stands. The supporters of the Riviera club immediately burst onto the pitch to do battle with the players as well as the Olympian staff. Important clashes followed, mixing the players and the management of the two teams as well as Nice fans.
These behaviors should not go unpunished. Several players risk being suspended, starting with Payet. If OM considers that he is a victim in this affair, the Reunionese incur between one and four games of suspension, according to the scales of the General Regulations of the FFF, for having returned the bottles to the stands. His teammate Alvaro Gonzalez, also at the heart of these incidents, could receive the same sanction if his behavior is deemed excessive.
Pape Gueye and Jean-Clair Todibo were seen grabbing each other. This attitude could earn them between six and eight games of suspension for attempted blow or brutality. But the one who risks the biggest is one of Jorge Sampaoli’s assistants. A video on social networks shows him delivering a violent punch to a supporter, who was completely stunned by the violence of the shock.
The man, whose identity is not known, risks between six months and a year of suspension for “act of brutality”. The penalty could be greater in the event of a temporary work stoppage to support the Aiglons. It could go up to four years if the ITT is less than 8 days and up to seven years if it is more than 8 days.
For its part, OGC Nice, which is responsible for its supporters and guarantor of security, is exposed to significant penalties, which range from a call to order to a fine, including the loss of one or more matches, withdrawal of points in the standings, total or partial closed session, or suspension from the field. The FFF scale even provides for outright radiation. One thing is certain, the start of the school year promises to be very busy for the disciplinary committee.
