The disciplinary committee of the Professional Football League (LFP) will not sanction Olympique de Marseille for the stone-throwing of Lyon coaches because the incidents “occurred on public roads”, it announced Wednesday evening.
“After having read the elements of the file and proceeded to the hearing of the two clubs”, the commission, contacted by the president of the LFP Vincent Labrune, “notes that the incidents which occurred on the public highway are not likely to engage the responsibility of the organizing club,” it is written in the press release.
“Consequently, the Commission will not take disciplinary action on these incidents,” added the League.
The match which could not be played, notably after the injury of the Lyon coach Fabio Grosso hit in the head by the shattering of a bus window, was postponed to December 6, but the location of the meeting , an object of tension between the two clubs, has not yet been determined.
The disciplinary committee also opened an investigation after racist chants and gestures observed in the stadium's visitor parking lot by Lyon fans. The decision is expected on November 22.
