Bordeaux blast Arsenal target for lack of ‘respect’

Date published: Wednesday 17th January 2018 10:00

Ligue Un side Bordeaux have announced that they have begun disciplinary proceedings against three players, including Arsenal and Liverpool target Malcom.

Malcom, along with teammates Otavio and Cafu, have angered fans by posting an Instagram video laughing and joking with fans over the 2-0 defeat to Caen.

The loss leaves Bordeaux 13th in the table after 21 games, but they are just four points above the relegation zone.

Fan backlash has led Bordeaux to react, with the club releasing an official statement on Wednesday morning.

‘FC Girondins de Bordeaux summons three players for a disciplinary interview,’ reads a story on their official website.

‘The club strongly condemns the video published Tuesday night on social networks at the exit of Matmut ATLANTIQUE by relatives of Cafu, Malcom and Otavio.

‘Faced with this lack of maturity, solidarity and respect towards the institution and all its components, FC Girondins de Bordeaux will summon the three players mentioned as soon as possible, for a disciplinary interview.’

Malcom has been the subject of interest from both Arsenal and Liverpool this winter, with the former looking for replacements for Alexis Sanchez.
