Presnel Kimpembe received four suspension matches – including one suspended – for all of his work in Rennes on Sunday night. A sanction that Leonardo does not understand.
For his strong tackle against Rennais Jérémy Doku on Sunday night at Roazhon Park, Presnel Kimpembe logically received a red card, worsening his case in the wake by taking the beak with Romain Del Castillo then shouting homophobic insults on the way to the locker room. Meeting this Tuesday evening, the Disciplinary Commission of the Professional Football League (LFP) did not fail to sanction the person concerned. Up to four matches, one of which was suspended.
A relatively heavy sentence that potentially deprives the Parisian defender of the end of the season. Unless the PSG dominates Montpellier in the semi-final of the Coupe de France – in which case there will be a final for Mauricio Pochettino’s men, which will allow Kimpembe to serve his sentence earlier and return for the final day of the championship, against Brest on 23 may. In the eyes of Leonardo, the Disciplinary Commission of the LFP had much too heavy a hand in this matter.
« I find it completely inconsistent that a gambling foul is sanctioned in this way at the end of the championship, it is the biggest sanction for a gaming foul this season. “, Says the Brazilian leader in remarks quoted by AFP and relayed by L’Equipe. “ He is late, it is a major fault, but that it is the biggest penalty of the season, it is disproportionate “, Adds the sporting director of PSG, estimating that his player had” no intention to hurt “. And to compare that to the recent sanctions fallen for the clashes which occurred to Louis-II at the end of ASM-OL: ” For the Monaco-Lyon brawl, only one player took three matches, and Kimpembe took four matches with the suspension. It’s completely inconsistent! »
