Suspended for four matches, including one suspended, the defender of Paris Saint-Germain sees his cause defended by his sports director.
The disciplinary committee has ruled. And she did not spare Presnel Kimpembe, suspended for three firm matches and one suspended after his expulsion against Rennes last weekend (1-1). The 25-year-old world champion was guilty of a big mistake on Belgian winger Jérémy Doku before losing his temper in the corridors of Roazhon Park. The sanction is however not to the taste of the sports director of PSG, Leonardo, in comments reported by theAFP. “I find it completely incoherent that a game error is sanctioned in this way at the end of the championship, it is the biggest sanction for a game error this season”, regretted the ex-Brazilian international, noting that Doku ” was not injured ”and that his player had“ no intention of hurting ”. “He is late, it is an important fault, but that it is the biggest sanction of the season, it is disproportionate”, judge Leonardo, who will not also be worried for his charge against the referee of PSG-Lens (2-1).
And Leo to continue: “For the Lyon-Monaco fight, only one player took three matches, and Kimpembe takes four matches with the suspension, it’s completely inconsistent. Today in committee, they only judged the fault, there were no further discussions on what happened. ” Regarding the incidents that took place at Louis II between ASM and OL, Monegasques Willem Geubbels and Pietro Pellegri received three and two suspension matches respectively, and Lyonnais Maxence Caqueret and Mattia De Sciglio, from a match. The latter was also able to play last weekend against Lorient. The Rhone club had seized the conference of conciliators of the CNOSF for this. In the event of a qualifying victory at Lens on Wednesday in the semi-finals of the Coupe de France and therefore of qualification of PSG for the final of the Coupe de France, Presnel Kimpembe could return on the 38th day of the championship against Brest. Otherwise, his 2020-21 season is already over.
