The French club wants to postpone the cup match against Brest, scheduled for Sunday. Regulations do not allow for postponement
Bordeaux is going through a complicated situation in the first weekend of 2022. The French club is facing a wave of Covid-19, and so far, there is no possibility to postpone the match against Brest, referring to the cup.
Ricardo Mangas and 20 of his teammates have Covid-19 and Bordeaux are forced to play in the cup match with the B team, because competition regulations do not allow for postponement.
“For several days we have been trying to get clear answers from the FFF to prepare for the game properly. We are trying to exchange contacts and clarifications. What were we told? Nothing or almost nothing. Some text messages were exchanged with our general manager, but nothing concrete when we are away Four days into the game. They don’t respect us, and what’s worse, they don’t respect this competition. I understand it’s time for vacation, and everyone wants to rest. But we have to be,” said Admar Lopez, club manager.
