The guardameta of the Olympique of Lyon, Anthony Lopes, has effected some statements in which it has defended to his mate Fekir, that this weekend imitated in the field of the Saint-Etienne the controversial gesture of Leo Messi in Santiago Bernabéu, when the Argentinian star removed the T-shirt to show it to the public merengue after annotating the 2-3 in the last minute of the Classical.

"He celebrated the goal as it wanted to, does not be necessary to give him more turns. The fans were already hot by the 0-5, the derbi heated before playing and this does not subtract him charm", has signalled Lopes in statements collected by multiple means, between them 'Sport', and defending therefore to his mate Fekir, that no thought it to him to the hour to imitate to the Argentinian of the Barça.

"There will be opinions more or less negative. If there was provocation of Fekir? Ask him to Messi, that did the same in the field of the Real Madrid", has added Lopes to the media. "It can that it was a gesture that do not have to do, there was not need to do it, but no me arrepiento", recognised on the other hand Fekir, the author of the gesture and of one of the goals of the Lyon to the Saint-Etienne (0-5).

The context of the gesture of Messi, very distinct

The trainer of the Olympique of Lyon, Bruno Genesio, does not share however the gesture of Fekir, that to his seem sobraba. "It does not like me that a mine footballer do this, a provocation like this does not contribute at all, have to know keep the humility". And it is that the Lyon finish winning by 0-5, by what the context in that the player made the gesture was very different of the of Messi in the Bernabéu.

Leo Messi resolved in the last minute a party equalised to the end, whereas Fekir so only contributed to the goleada of his team in front of the Saint-Etienne. From here that the gesture of the French sobrara more than the one of the '10' in the stadium madridista.
