Paris: Paris St Germain women’s coach Didier Olle-Nicolle has been provisionally suspended following allegations of inappropriate behaviour, the club said in a statement.

“Paris Saint-Germain was informed today of inappropriate actions and comments to which members of its women’s team were allegedly exposed,” a club statement said.

“These facts and remarks, if confirmed, would be incompatible with the sporting and human values of Paris Saint-Germain.

Placed on leave

“Paris Saint-Germain takes the situation very seriously and intends to shed full light on the facts and comments reported. In this context and in order to preserve the interests of all parties involved, the coach of the women’s team has been placed on leave today, by mutual agreement with Paris Saint-Germain.”

Frenchman Olle-Nicolle, who has coached men’s teams in Ligue 1 and Ligue 2, has been in charge of the PSG women’s team since July 2021. They are currently second in the French top flight and play leaders Lyon on Friday in their penultimate game.

Last week they won the French Cup and also reached the semi-finals of this year’s Champions League, losing to Lyon.
