MATCHS DU JOUR 20
Achraf Hakimi went through all the emotions on Saturday, May 13. The Moroccan fullback scored in a 5-0 win over Ajaccio in the 35th round of Ligue 1. However, the former Real Madrid player was sent off in the 77th minute after an altercation with Mangani. It was his second red in his last three games. On his way back to the dressing room, the Moroccan said: "This is France". An exit that has been subject to many interpretations.
The coach Christophe Galtier underlined the lack of control of Achraf Hakimi. "Against Lorient, it was a committed gesture but in the game. It was a reaction to a small scuffle. Having seen the footage again, I think the red cards are harsh but there must be more control in a match where the score is settled and everyone is enjoying themselves. There should be no reaction, we should not give the referee the opportunity to punish in a strong way. Having seen the images again, we (the referee) could have had a little more discernment and calmed everyone down with a yellow card.
