Fabio Grosso takes up the pen. Injured in the face on Sunday, when the bus transporting the Lyon group to Marseille was stoned, the Italian technician from OL spoke out, for the first time, on social networks. “What happened Sunday evening could have been a tragedy, and it certainly was for the sport and all those who love it,” lamented this Tuesday the 2006 world champion, whose injuries required the post of a dozen stitches and earned him 30 days of ITT. Grosso, 45, did not lead this Tuesday's training session in Lyon. “I sincerely hope that this will serve as a lesson for our future,” he added, before sending thanks for the messages of “support”.
In view of the seriousness of the facts, the match was postponed on Sunday evening. OL are demanding, through Vincent Ponsot, that it be played on neutral ground, and not at the Vélodrome as planned. In the meantime, bottom Lyon (ranking here) will host Metz on Sunday (1 p.m.), during the 11th day of L1.
