From an accounting perspective, there was not too much damage. At ten for 70 minutes and led to the score, the Red Star continued their good series Friday in Sète (1-1) and remains 2nd in the National. But the club made a big mistake administratively.
Deprived of Théo Sainte-Luce, Maxime Sivis and Nathan Bizet, coach Vincent Bordot could not rely on his typical team for this late match of the 6th day. The three players were indeed suspended. Except that the leaders were wrong… They could indeed have aligned them. Sainte-Luce, Sivis and Bizet were not due to serve their suspension until next week. They are therefore still considered suspended by the Federation and will therefore not be able to play Tuesday against Avranches in another late match.
Administrative management complicated by the Covid
A serious error since the Red Star will also be deprived of a 4th suspended player, Ousmane Sidibé sent off in the 19th minute on Friday in Sète. The last straw is that the experienced 35-year-old defender only made his return as the holder (he had not been since the first day against Bastia) to compensate for the absences of Sivis and Sainte-Luce … Two players who should therefore have played.
In addition to making the classification illegible, the many matches postponed because of the Covid, also disrupt the administrative management of the clubs which must go through the regulations to find out who can play or not … Ten days ago, Bourg-en-Bresse had asked reserves after the victory (4-0) of the Red Star in a late match of the 4th day. Cheikh Ndoye who had signed after the date when the match should initially have taken place, had indeed been aligned. Bourg-en-Bresse had chosen not to use his latest recruits. This time, it was the Red Star who was right.
