The defender was caught laughing, while captain Leo Dubois tried to rally the team with a speech. His actions did not go down well with manager Peter Bosz and sporting director Juninho, and were later dropped from the first team.

However, according to new developments, sources revealed to ESPN that the Brazilian was sanctioned by the club for repeatedly farting in the locker room.

Marcelo was projected as a leader by Lyon and also signed a new contract ahead of the 2021-22 season, but his actions after the loss to Angers have been branded as ‘inappropriate behaviour’.

The defender’s stay at Lyon quickly came to an end, with his contract being terminated in January, following which he joined Bordeaux.

Bordeaux are currently placed at the bottom of the points table. Lyon, on the other hand, rank eighth.
