The meeting interrupted Friday night between Bordeaux and Rodez continues to talk. The Disciplinary Commission of the LFP announced on Monday that it will render on June 12 its decision concerning the incidents of the match, thus not validating the victory on the green carpet of the Ruthenian club.
Indirectly concerned, FC Annecy (which would be relegated to National if Rodez was given winner) explains in a statement on Monday evening to be satisfied with this temporary decision. The Savoyard club also insists on the supposed injury of Lucas Buades, the Rodez player "attacked" by an ultra of the Girondins de Bordeaux, which led to the stoppage of the match in the 22nd minute while Rodez had opened the scoring: "The president and the coach of the RAF have in turn claimed that the player Lucas Buades was in the hospital having had a concussion. It's not true! The player did not go out on a stretcher and never went to the hospital."

The Savoyard club goes even further and threatens to prosecute if the final decision is not in its favour: "In accordance with sporting regulations and common law, we reserve the right, if necessary, to file a complaint with the Public Prosecutor, for criminal acts of sports corruption and fraud that may result in a prison sentence of five years and a fine of five hundred thousand euros, an amount that may be increased to twice the proceeds of the offence".
If "no violence on a field should therefore take place", on the other hand "take advantage of external events to profit such as the maintenance of his club, by betraying football, is also contrary to sporting ethics", had launched this Sunday Sébastien Faraglia, president of Annecy. Suspicion "openly and publicly" the club is "a shame", replied the RAF: "These remarks are inadmissible, we can not say in the same momentum that the violence is unacceptable and make the trial of the victim of these same acts of violence".
In addition, during the After Foot RMC show on Monday, Karine Shebabo, Lucas Buades' lawyer, says that the player has "received a lot of threats of violence and death on him and his entourage. He received a blow to the larynx that caused him to fall to the ground, followed by traumatic amnesia. The doctors who saw him considered it serious enough that he did not resume the game. He wasn't the one who decided to arrest her."
