when Kamara expects to take a red, before being warned

Boubacar Kamara seemed to take the direction of the locker room after a gross fault in the position of last defender, Wednesday during OM-Reims. But the defender was only warned, obviously to his surprise.

The very controversial arbitration of Mr Letexier during OM-Reims (1-1) gave rise to a fleeting moment of hesitation at the end of the match. A few moments after the Marseille equalizer from the penalty spot, Jorge Sampaoli’s team got a last big fear (90th + 8). On an uncertain pass from Luan Peres, Hugo Ekitike grabbed the ball just before the center circle before throwing himself towards the opposing goal. After pushing his ball, he was stopped by a tackle and a tackle from Boubacar Kamara, gained speed and in the position of last defender.

Kamara visibly surprised to only receive a yellow

When getting up, the young Marseille defender took a few steps towards the locker room, as if he expected to receive a red card. A sanction that seemed logical since it annihilated a real goal action. But Mr Letexier only finally warned him, it seems, to the surprise of the international U21 who has resumed his pivotal place. The referee’s decision is one of the many recriminations in Reims.

The Champagne club thus denounced the penalty awarded to Marseille at the end of the match, a few minutes after another canceled in their favor after a limited intervention by Duje Caleta-Car on Ekitike. “I have not seen the images again but hot, we are a little robbed, reacted Yunis Abdelhamid, the captain of the Stade de Reims, at the microphone of Prime Video after the final whistle. Andrew (Gravillon) is at the head duel, he only looks at the ball, he does not look at Payet. It’s complicated to be fooled by an error like that. “

“The last decision of the referee deprives us of the victory, also regretted the coach Oscar Garcia If you have the personality to whistle for Marseille, you have to have it to whistle the other.” OM, either, did not appreciate the behavior of the referee like Dimitri Payet who denounced “bad decisions” and “the times when the referee does not speak to us correctly”.
