Marcus Thuram guilty of sexual assault!


By: Manu Tournoux

The French striker made a very naughty gesture on Wednesday during the clash against Atletico Madrid: he pinched Stefan Savic’s private parts.

The duel between Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan in the round of 16 of the Champions League was tense to say the least. Three weeks after the 1-0 victory won by the Italian champions in Lombardy, the Colchoneros in turn won 2-1 at home, finally securing their ticket to the quarter-finals of the Champions League on penalties. goal (3 tab to 2).

The Nerazzuri, finalists in the competition last season, may have great regrets and the French players of Inter Milan bear part of the responsibility for this elimination. Benjamin Pavard was the first to make a mistake by missing a clearance in the area, Antoine Griezmann taking advantage of this error to equalize just a few minutes after the visitors opened the score.

Replaced by his trainer

Marcus Thuram, for his part, missed the qualifying goal at the start of the last quarter of an hour. Launched deep by Lautaro Martinez, he actually missed his face-to-face with Jan Oblak by shooting over the goal. A missed opportunity with serious consequences since Memphis Depay scored the winning goal a few minutes later. He had the opportunity to make up for it during extra time but he also missed a header from a cross from Bissek when he was alone in front of goal. Something that’s probably going through your head.

Should we see a cause and effect link? Still, the vice-world champion completely slipped up during extra time by grabbing the private parts of Stefan Savic while he was in a duel with the Madrid defender on a throw-in. The images are eloquent but the VAR has decided not to call the referee, the former Sochalien getting away without the slightest card. The sanction finally came from his coach, Simone Inzaghi, who immediately replaced him with Alexis Sanchez, one of the three Milan players to have missed his penalty.
