Reims boss Óscar García: “Maybe we should train with only 10 players”

As reported in France Bleu Reims manager Óscar García was not best pleased about the sending off of Bradley Locko in the 22nd minute in Stade de Reims’ 3-0 loss against Monaco yesterday, and sarcastically proposed a new training method for the players to get used to playing a man-down:

“Maybe the idea would be to train with only 10 players on the pitch, because Ligue 1 referees have decided we have to play with 10”

In a season which has seen 20 red cards already in Ligue 1, Stade de Reims have been the most hard done by through referring decisions so far – having received four red cards in only eight games into the season. Yesterday saw an extreme case of that, with Nice’s Jean Clair-Todibo was sent off after nine seconds against Angers – who brought down forward Abdallah Sima who was running through on goal.
