Africa-Press – Zambia. Lyon has reportedly banished defender Marcelo after he was caught farting in the dressing room and laughing about it The Ligue 1 side confirmed last August that the defender had been demoted to the reserves due to “inappropriate behaviour”.
Marcelo had started their opening two games of the season, prior to being given the boot. His final game for Lyon was a 3-0 defeat to Angers on matchday two, during which he scored an own goal.
L’Equipe claim, via GFFN, that the 34-year-old loudly farted in the dressing room after the calamitous match. To make matters worse, he is also alleged to have laughed about it.
The incident is said to have enraged club legend and sporting director Juninho. Marcelo was initially banished to the reserves, before having his contract cancelled in January.
The Brazilian had played for Lyon since 2017, helping them reach the Champions League semi-finals. He went on to play 11 times for Lyon’s reserve side, before having his contract terminated in January. After becoming a free agent, Marcelo signed for Bordeaux on a free transfer.
