Angel Di Maria, accused of spitting in the direction of the Marseillais Alvaro Gonzalez, passes Wednesday before the disciplinary commission of the League (LFP), a new extension of the stormy "Classic" PSG-OM polluted by five exclusions as well as accusations of racism.

The Argentinian, who was not sanctioned during the Ligue 1 match won by OM (1-0) on September 13, was caught by television images which convinced the body to summon him .

The Telefoot broadcaster captured the moment when the player spat at the Spanish defender, but did not reach him, as well as the latter's strong reaction.

The disciplinary regulations of the Federation (FFF), which serves as a reference for the LFP, provide for up to six suspension matches for "voluntary sputum likely to reach or in the direction of a person".

"In times of Covid-19, spitting is very serious"

“Hitting” the targeted person, and “more when the sputum hits them in the face”, can make the punishment worse - two situations that do not seem to apply for Di Maria.

But the texts did not anticipate the health situation linked to the new coronavirus, which can be transmitted by postilions.

"In a period of Covid-19, spitting is very serious," responded Marseille midfielder Valentin Rongier.

Controversy

On the PSG side, coach Thomas Tuchel does not expect to see his player, one of the best at the start of the season, to be suspended.

“I'm very surprised Angel has to speak with the commission, especially so late.

I can not wait for a suspension of Angel ”, indicated the technician last Wednesday, at the time of the announcement of the disciplinary committee of his convocation.

The German's astonishment is also due to the fact that the referee, helped by the video assistance, did not notice the spitting during the match.

Di Maria's gesture "was the subject of a search by video assistance at that time, and she could not find any images that supported this fact", told AFP Pascal Garibian, technical director of arbitration (DTA), the day after the “clasico”.

This meeting, played in a deleterious atmosphere at the Parc des Princes and ended with the start of a fight and five exclusions, has already resulted in a first round of sanctions on September 16.

The disciplinary committee also opened an investigation after the Brazilian Neymar claimed to have been the victim of racist abuse.
