Paris Saint-Germain has suspended women’s coach Didier Ollé-Nicolle after accusations of inappropriate behavior toward players on his team came to light.
Players were interviewed by the club Tuesday after a complaint was made, according to the Daily Telegraph.
“These facts and comments, if confirmed, would be incompatible with the sporting and human values of Paris Saint-Germain,” PSG said in a statement to the Telegraph. “Paris Saint-Germain takes the situation very seriously and intends to shed full light on the facts and comments reported.”
One source said that the coach’s behavior toward players and his language was brought to light several months ago with no action taken, the Telegraph reported.
PSG has yet to complete its season, with a game against Lyon on Sunday key to their quest to defend their league title. PSG currently sits five points back of first-place Lyon in Division 1 Féminine.
The club has dealt with inner turmoil throughout the season.
Last November, Aminata Diallo and Kheira Hamraoui were assaulted by masked men while driving home from a team event. The investigation into the incident is still ongoing.
Then, in April, Hamroui was involved in an altercation with forward Sandy Baltimore at practice.
