After the Nice-Nantes controversy, Garibian comes to the aid of Letexier, “an honest and honest referee”

Antoine Kombouaré is not losing his temper, two days after the match OGC Nice-FC Nantes (1-1), which saw his team being joined in additional time, after having conceded a very questionable penalty. Even more than this whistled hand against his defender Jean-Charles Castelletto (90th + 3), it is the explanation of François Letexier, after his choice not to sanction the Niçois Mattia Vitti, despite a double hand (21st), which irritates the Nantes coach.

“We talked about arbitration, VAR, but above all I saw dishonest people, confided Antoine Kombouaré, Monday in “L’Equipe du soir”. To err is human, I make mistakes every day in my work. On the other hand, being able to lie to justify a decision, I cannot accept it. »

“We should not question their honesty”

This Tuesday, the technical director of French arbitration Pascal Garibian wanted to defend François Letexier in The Team : “We cannot accept that a coach calls into question the honesty and integrity of a referee in general, it is not possible. François Letexier, and in general all referees, are honest and honest. They can make mistakes, but their honesty should not be questioned”.

It remains to be seen how the LFP disciplinary committee will sanction (or not), in the coming days, the strong criticism launched, on Sunday, by Antoine Kombouaré, but also by the Strasbourg residents Julien Stéphan and Dimitri Liénard, against the arbitration body.
