Clermont pillar Cristian Ojovan knows his sanction. Guilty of a nasty clearing as useless as dangerous on the knee of Alban Placines during ASM’s defeat against Toulouse on February 25 (33-37), the Moldovan was suspended for six weeks by the disciplinary committee . The Toulouse player, who ruptured the internal lateral ligament in his knee, saw his season end following this gesture.

The entry point for the sanction was set at 12 weeks but the commission took into account the admission of the facts, the expression of remorse, the conduct before and during the hearing as well as his clean disciplinary record.
