Auxerre players banned by LFP after fighting each other

Pierre-Yves Polomat, seen playing for Saint-Etienne, has been banned for six games.

The two Auxerre players sent off for fighting each other during a Ligue 2 game earlier this month have been suspended for a combined total of 11 matches by the French Football League (LFP).

Pierre-Yves Polomat and Michael Barreto were dismissed nine minutes from the end of Auxerre's 4-1 defeat at Quevilly Rouen after throwing punches at each other.

Defender Polomat, on loan from Ligue 1 Saint-Etienne, has been given a six-match ban by the LFP Disciplinary Commission, while midfielder Barreto has been suspended for five.

The pair, who will be able to return before the end of the second division season, were separated by a home players and a member of the Auxerre delegation who ran onto the pitch when the incident flared.

In a statement issued after the match, Auxerre said they were "horrified and ashamed" about what had happened.

"The two players have made a mockery of the image of an institution that has made education and its youth academy priorities," the statement added.
