LEAGUE 1 - If the relegation of Amiens, and Toulouse was "suspended" yesterday by the State Council, the two clubs, which ended this season, truncated to the last two places in the ranking, are not assured of staying in League 1. Explanations.
[updated on 10 June 2020 at 11: 40 am] This time, season 2019/2020 League 1 is definitely finished. The Prime minister had announced as early as Tuesday, April 28, in the midst of a crisis of the coronavirus, the football League (LFP) had confirmed the Thursday 30 of April, establishing a classification on the basis of a performance index taking into account the number of points scored from all games played, the State Council has approved on Tuesday 9 June. The court has validated the end of the season and the positions of each club in the standings, but has contributed to a shade size, announcing the suspension of relégations Amiens, and Toulouse (the two clubs, with Lyon, who had entered the Council of State), and has "ordered the League to revisit the issue of the format of the League 1 for the season 2020-2021". In contrast, Lyon and president Jean-Michel Aulas, who had also entered the Council of State, have not been successful. They hoped that the League 1 can take in particular in order to keep the hopes of a european qualification (OL finished only 7th in the ranking). The Council of State has rejected the appeal.Toulouse and Amiens could still be relegated
the suspension of The two relégations does it mean that the next season of Ligue 1 will be played at 22 ? Or - less likely hypothesis - that the mounted Lens and Lorient, promoted to League 1 will be cancelled ? Caution... In fact, if the relégations of the two clubs are suspended, they are not permanently cancelled. The State Council asked the League to review the situation in the light of the new convention of the League 1 ("the judge hearing The application considers that the board of directors of the League could not legally be based, to decide whether to relegate the last two in the League 1, on the fact that the current agreement with the French football Federation (FFF) provides for a limit of twenty clubs, while this convention ends on 30 June next and that a new agreement must be signed"), but as recalled by the Team : "keeping Them remains, however, unlikely, given that the convention was renewed at the agm of the League of the 20 may and it is still calling for a League 1 to 18 or 20 clubs, but not to 22"...
This has not precluded Toulouse and Amiens to rejoice on Tuesday afternoon. In a statement posted on its website, the WCC has said : "The Toulouse Football Club (TFC) welcomes the order made this day by the judge of the Council of State. The TFC, which supports the delivery of relégations at the end of the last season was illegal, has seen its position steadily devoted by the judge. The TFC is therefore maintained in Ligue 1 for the season 2020 - 2021". For its part, the club picard reacts on his Twitter account by claiming : "Amiens in Ligue 1 ! Place in the sport ".
"The clubs Amiens, and Toulouse are in the right to declare what they want, but they can't say tonight that they are kept in League 1, responded to Didier Quillot, the director general of the LFP. They need to reread the article 3 of the ordinance published this day that says 'we ask you to reconsider the decision,' what are we going to do".The recall of the classification of the Ligue 1
