Ligue 1 referee who kicked player banned for six months

Ligue 1 official Tony Chapron has been suspended by the French Football League (LFP) for six months for kicking Nantes defender Diego Carlos during a 1-0 defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

In the late stages of the game in January, Carlos charged forward to join a Nantes counter-attack and clipped Chapron’s heels — clearly accidentally — sending the official tumbling to the ground.

However, Chapron retaliated and swung a kick out at the Brazilian before giving Carlos his marching orders with a second yellow card as the player complained.

The match official’s actions were immediately criticised by Nantes players after the game, with midfielder Valentin Rongier calling for him to be given a lengthy suspension.

“I don’t think Diego did it on purpose because he’s not a bad guy, and after the referee gets up and kicks out at him from the ground,” he said. “He dared to tell me that he slipped but I know he struck him. I know it’s difficult to referee, but they have to question themselves from time to time. If a player did that, we’d be banned for 10 matches. I hope the pictures speak for themselves.”

A retrospective review then saw Carlos’ red card quickly overturned by LFP officials, while the Chapron was suspended while the disciplinary committee investigated the situation.

However, despite the LFP having decided on the full extent of the referee’s punishment, half of his penalty has been suspended.

“After hearing Mr. Tony Chapron and reading the official’s report, the commission decided to sanction him with six months of suspension, three of which were suspended,” a statement on the website of the French football governing body read.
