Ligue 2: AC Ajaccio calls the LFP “xenophobic”, the League plans to file a complaint

A conflict opposes AC Ajaccio, leader of Ligue 2, and the LFP after the defender of the Corsican club Oumar Gonzalez was punished with two games of suspension, one of which was suspended by the Disciplinary Committee.

This is a totally crazy press release that the club of published on Thursday AC Ajaccio. On Wednesday, the LFP Disciplinary Committee published the sanctions and announced in particular that the Corsican defender Oumar Gonzalez is suspended for two matches, one of which is suspended for a simulation during the match of the 19 th day of Ligue 2 against Grenoble (1-0).

In the process, Wednesday evening, AC Ajaccio reacted. Wrong. Very bad. The Corsican club published a vitriolic press release to condemn this decision by the LFP: “From there to thinking that Mr. Deneu (Sébastien Deneux, president of the disciplinary committee, editor’s note) and his team are xenophobic, there is no only one step that we do not hesitate to take”, can we read on the ACA website.

Radio silence for Sébastien Deneux, targeted by the attacks of the ACA

By discovering the press release, the blood of the leaders of the LFP did only one turn. Exchanges took place with Christian Leca, the president of the ACA who persists and signs on his position, even if it means exposing himself to a sanction. Leca is a member of the League’s Board of Directors and president of the Ligue 2 college.

In response, Arnaud Rouger, the CEO of the LFP wrote a letter, which we procured, to the members of the CA (with a copy to Noël Le Graët and Vincent Labrune) to denounce the attitude of the Ajacciens. “These statements are unworthy of your duties, wrote Arnaud Rouger, addressing the boss of the ACA. which is your strictest right, rather than choosing public insult.”

A complaint is under consideration. Sébastien Deneux, whose commission is described in the press release as “the band at Deneu” does not wish to comment. But the LFP is studying the option of filing a complaint against the Corsican club or its president. The Tous Unis union, of which Christian Leca is the representative on the Board, has not yet reacted.
