If he did not want to incriminate the arbitration, Rudi Garcia blasted the attitude of the Monegasques, responsible, in his opinion, for the general fight that occurred after the final whistle. What tarnish the victory of his troops (2-3).
Rudi Garcia will be obliged to innovate next Saturday on the occasion of the reception of Lorient. The fault of the very many absences with which the Lyon coach will have to deal. Already deprived of Memphis Depay at the forefront, theOlympique Lyonnais will also have to do without Jason Denayer, released on injury to Monaco, Sunday, after only half an hour of play, Maxence Caqueret, logically expelled in the middle of the second half, but also Marcelo and Mattia De Sciglio, in turn excluded after the final whistle due to a general brawl.

Red cards that the Rhone technician had a hard time digesting. and this despite the hard-won victory. Like Jean-Michel Aulas, who denounced the attitude of Monegasques at the microphone of Canal +, Rudi Garcia indeed considers that his players did nothing and were attacked, even suggesting that these provocations were deliberate. “I won’t say anything about refereeing, the only thing I want to stress is: what is the interest of OL players in taking red cards when they win and there are three days left? There are not any, he said at a press conference. This means that the provocation comes from home, it is abnormal that we took red cards when we did nothing, we did not even retaliate. And you will notice that for their part, it is young people who provoked who are not titular. “
But these twists of fate do not undermine the determination of the former Lille, determined to finish foot on the floor and to stamp the pawn at ASM in the race for third qualifying place for the Champions League. “We come back to a point of a team that we say is the best in the championship, so we should not be that bad, he continued. What matters is looking ahead. I don’t think there will be many teams who will take nine points (in three matches), we have to be that team. There is no relief, but a fierce desire to finish on the podium. “ This requires a victory against the Merlus, next Saturday. “We will have to find an eleven and defenders for Lorient,” Rudi Garcia has already anticipated.
