On the air of OL TV in the program “OL Night Session”, Vincent Ponsot, the general director of Olympique Lyonnais, returned to the serious incidents caused last Sunday October 31 on the sidelines of the Ligue 1 Marseille match - Lyons. As a reminder, the OL players' bus was stoned and Italian coach Fabio Grosso was severely affected. The club's general manager suggests playing the match on neutral ground. “We will initiate a certain number of procedures and actions so that the file is processed. Our hope is that today the security conditions for playing in Marseille are not met. We should therefore play on neutral ground.”
“Our players have nothing to do with it, just like they had nothing to do with it when the bottle was thrown at Groupama Stadium, even if we sanctioned them sportingly,” continues Ponsot, before adding: “What We want the safety of our players to be guaranteed. They are there to play football and what we ask is that they do not take a concrete block on their heads.” The Competitions Commission will meet this Thursday, November 2 to discuss the situation.
