OL-OM arrested: Payet files a complaint and goes to see an occupational doctor

Dimitri Payet chose to file a complaint the day after the attack on Sunday evening at Groupama Stadium. Victim of a water bottle thrown in the temple by a 32-year-old individual arrested in the wake, he is supported in his approach by the OM, which will become a civil party in the investigation launched by the public prosecutor’s office of the Republic of Lyon.

The playmaker was present at the Commanderie this Monday noon but did not train with his teammates. The former international tricolor will consult an occupational doctor, according to information from RMC Sport, at the request of the prosecutor. The latter will have to assess the psychological and possibly physical consequences of the player. No information has filtered for the time being on a possible work stoppage.

Suspended for Thursday night’s Europa League match in Istanbul, against Galatasaray, he could play the next Ligue 1 match on Sunday night at home against Troyes.

Already the victim of projectile throws at the Allianz Riviera in mid-August, he had taken a position to avoid this kind of overflow. Before the clasico against PSG, he called for calm in a video posted on his social networks.

For its part, Olympique Lyonnais has also announced that it has lodged a complaint against the individual and has become a civil party for the rest of the proceedings against this act which he describes as “isolated”. In the meantime, the LFP has just sanctioned the Rhone residents of a closed-door match as a precaution. The verdict will be rendered on December 8 at the end of the investigation.
