The red card that was shown to Reims midfielder Bradley Locko on Sunday during the 8th day of Ligue 1 at the welcoming of Monaco and who had offended his coach Oscar Garcia was overturned on Wednesday by the Disciplinary Committee of the French Football League. “The Disciplinary Committee concludes that the red card should be withdrawn after reviewing the photographs and the referee’s report, as stated in the commission’s news statement.
Locko was shown a red card by the referee Marc Bollengier in the 22nd minute of the match for an entirely accidental sole on the Monaco player Breel Embolo when the two players were clearing the ball. After that, there was no score recorded at all. However, his ejection altered the course of the game, which ultimately resulted in a 3-0 victory for the away team. Oscar Garcia was heard complaining to the referee after the game’s conclusion that the official had ruined it “.
“They make us pay something, but I don’t know what”
“The Catalan technician said, “I don’t know why we didn’t utilize the VAR.” He was under the impression that this arbitration decision was not the only one to go against his team, which was 17th in the rankings and the first team to be demoted. “This is not the first time that has happened to us; in fact, we have been fined multiple times. He stated, “In my perspective, they do charge us something; nevertheless, I am unaware of what it is.”
In addition, the disciplinary committee decided to overturn the second yellow card that Angevin Sofiane Boufal had received on the eighth day of the competition for her role in the SCO’s triumph in Nice. A second yellow card is equivalent to exclusion (1-0). As for Nicois Jean-Clair Todibo, who was kicked out of this match in the ninth second of play, he will serve the bare minimum sentence of a suspension match.
