French Referee, Tony Chapron who kicked out a Nantes player before sending him off has been suspended until further notice by the DTA.
A statement on fff.fr read: “Following the incident late in the Nantes-Paris SG match, involving referee Mr. Tony Chapron and Nantes player Mr. Diego Carlos, the technical body for referees (DTA) and the federal commission of referees have taken the following decisions:
“The withdrawal from duty of Mr. Tony Chapron initially appointed to referee the Angers SCO-ESTAC Troyes match in matchday 21 of Ligue 1 on Wednesday, January 17, until further notice.
“Mr. Tony Chapron will shortly be called to meet the LFP (French football league) disciplinary committee.
“Mr. Tony Chapron, after reviewing the images, stated that his fall was caused accidentally. He has informed the DTA that he has prepared a report to this effect for the LFP disciplinary commission.”
Nantes manager Claudio Ranieri avoided addressing the issue in his post-match press conference but his players were not so reticent – and neither was Kita.
The latter told L’Equipe: “It’s a gag. I got 20 text messages from all over the world telling me the referee was a joke.
“What do you want me to say? If I talk too much I will be called before the disciplinary commission. We don’t have the right to say anything.
“It’s scandalous to see that. He gives a red card to a player who did nothing. He needs to go back to school. It’s amateurish
