SM Caen defender on loan from Bordeaux Paul Baysse was the subject of social media rumours last night that he had attacked his manager, Fabien Mercadal, in training.
The 30-year-old’s wife, Sabrina, has moved to defend her husband on Twitter:
“That is not what happened… he was attacked, not the opposite… You do not know what really happened and I have some very interesting things to say! The coach must be feeling the pressure, that’s the only explanation I can have… My husband is perfectly nice and very professional, he is 30 and has been in this world for 14 years. Yet people are pouring misery on him – you don’t even know a quarter of what is being done to him and said to him!”
Caen sit 20th in the table and were faced with allegations of match-fixing earlier this week.
