After days of uncertainty, the current state of the lawn at the Moustoir stadium – which hosted the Interceltic Festival this week – did not ensure the safety of those involved in the match FC Lorient – OL scheduled for this Sunday. , at 13h. As a result, the LFP Competitions Commission has decided to postpone the match to a later date. After this announcement, OL deplored “that a fallback solution could not have been anticipated” and regretted “that FC Lorient did not do everything possible to prevent this situation”.
However, the Hakes reacted to this statement from Lyon, in the columns of The Team. “We went to great lengths to make the meeting happen. We mobilized the teams, we did tests: the lawn was catastrophic on Monday, almost acceptable today (Friday), but there were too many uncertainties. I deny that we did not anticipate. Since 2016, since we have our hybrid lawn, we have always been able to play after the Interceltic Festival. Moreover, if the LFP had felt that we had not done everything to play, it would certainly have made another decision., said Arnaud Tanguy, the general manager of the Lorient club. Also according to the sports daily, the meeting should be rescheduled in September.
