season ended for Leca, injured finger after an altercation with the goalkeeper coach

As revealed on Thursday by L’Equipe, Lens goalkeeper Jean-Louis Leca will not play again this season. The doorman Sang&Or, who was to regain his starting place against Monaco on the last day, fractured a finger after knocking in anger on a door following an altercation with Thierry Malaspina, the goalkeeper coach, training on Thursday.

Strong tensions at Lensois. Two days before the trip to Troyes on Saturday during the penultimate day of Ligue 1, an altercation opposed Jean-Louis Leca training to Thierry Malaspina, the goalkeeper coach reveals L’Equipe this Thursday evening .

After a verbal exchange, the two men almost came to blows but were finally separated. Angry, the former Bastiais would then have struck in a rage in a door and would thus have fractured a finger. If Leca was suspended against Troyes anyway, he should have regained his starting spot on May 21 against Monaco at the Bollaert stadium. This injury will deprive him of this final meeting.

Lens announces “appropriate disciplinary measures”

If RC Lens does not mention the name of the Corsican goalkeeper, nor that of Thierry Malaspina, the management of the Sang&Or confirmed an altercation within his group this Thursday: “The club confirms an excess of character shown by two members of the professional group, this day, at the end of the training, can we read in a press release from the RCL. Racing informs that it will take the appropriate disciplinary measures and specifies that this event which has occurred in the life of the group will be settled in the strictest privacy of the locker room.” It is Wuilker Farinez who should therefore keep the Lensois goals during the last two days of Ligue 1. Lens is 7th, four points from 5th place and can still aim for a European place.
