The incidents that occurred during the Lyon-Marseille match on November 21 are still talking about them. Monday, December 6, Jean-Michel Aulas, president of Olympique Lyonnais, reacted to a Twitter post on which was written “OL-OM incidents: why Marseille demand that Lyon have lost match “.
Under this publication, the president of OL replied: “To avoid stopping a match wrongly, clubs could be allowed to replace a potentially injured player: give the possibility of remaining at 11 as in the case of a concussion (6th substitute). Maybe it could even encourage the injured to resume? “
@OL @FFF @LFPfr To avoid stopping 1 match wrongly, clubs could be allowed to replace 1 potentially injured player: give the possibility of staying at 11 as in the case of 1 concussion (6th substitute) Maybe even that could incite the injured to resume?

This last sentence echoes the statements of the same president, the night of the game, at the microphone of Amazon Prime: “We are devastated by what happened, the OM doctor told me: ‘more fear than harm’.“Dimitri Payet was absent from Marseille training the day after the events, but started Thursday, November 25 on the field of Galatasaray.
This proposal by Jean-Michel Aulas comes two days before the disciplinary committee which must judge the facts that occurred during OL-OM, and while an arbitration report for the match implicates him. In this report, consulted by AFP, the president of OL would have launched to the referee of Lyon-Marseille, who refused to resume the meeting: “The competition depends on the LFP, you on the FFF, unfortunately I am part of the Comex and it will not stop there”. Contacted by franceinfo: sport, Jean-Michel Aulas did not respond to our requests.
Wednesday, December 8, the disciplinary committee is to meet to discuss the follow-up to the interruption of this match, caused by a spray of a plastic water bottle in the face of Marseillais Dimitri Payet. The commission, which opened an investigation, must decide on the various responsibilities in this incident and on the fate of the interrupted match.
