This Wednesday, the disciplinary committee of the professional football league was not kind to Jean-Pierre Caillot. The president of the Stade de Reims was suspended for nearly four months. He is suspended from the bench, from the referees’ changing rooms and from all official duties until 31 December 2022.

A sanction that takes effect on 13 September.

I know that I will take the disciplinary committee to heart for everything I have said, but I fully assume it “. Very angry after the arbitration of Jérémy Stinat during the last Reims – Lyon (1-1) on 28 August and during which he had listed and punished the many errors of evaluation of the referee, the president of the college of presidents of Ligue 1 obviously expected a large penalty from a commission accustomed to punishing evil by carefully avoiding the cause of evil.

During this match, Jérémy Stinat, the former player turned referee, not only forgot to whistle an obvious penalty in favor of the Stade de Reims, but he ruled out the stadiste midfielder Dion Lopy for a tackle with both feet off Alexandre Lacazette , and had forgotten to issue a second yellow card for Lyonnais Maxence Caqueret, to the great fury of the Reims crowd.

Too much, it was too much for Jean-Pierre Caillot who did not mince words in front of journalists. ” There is a problem with French arbitration. When I finally told the referee they sucked, he jotted it down in his notebook, so I’ll probably be suspended for that. But that was, I believe, the vision of the 16,000 people who were in the stadium. They make mistakes after mistakes, they are always the wrong decisions on the wrong side he had lost patience.

Ten disqualification matches!

This Wednesday, the LFP disciplinary committee issued its verdict. And the president of Champagne will be suspended for a period of 10 games as confirmed by the body in an official statement.

In the light of the official minutes, of the referral to the National Ethics Council, and after hearing Mr. Jean-Pierre Caillot, President of the Stade de Reims, the Commission decides to adopt the following decision: Suspension of the bench, dressing room of the referees and all official functions until 31 December 2022 “, We can read.

The sanction will take effect next Tuesday at midnight. It is January 1, 2023, on the occasion of the journey from Reims to Lille, that Jean-Pierre Caillot will once again be able to officially exercise his functions.
