The La Rochelle manager has already been banned three times since November 2021 for his attitude towards referees, starting with a two-week suspension for “disrespecting the authority of an official” during a stadium match. The former international was suspended again for two weeks in April 2022 for “indiscipline” and “challenging officials’ decisions” against Racing 92.

His most recent suspension, the heaviest (six weeks), dates back to September 21 for “disrespect” and “action against an official” against Lyon, who led La Rochelle to Europe on the second day of the Top 14. The crown in the spring did not qualify until October 31. With his new ten-week suspension, he will not return to the sidelines of the pitch until January 30.
