Lyon suspend Brazilian veteran Marcelo for 'inappropriate behaviour'

Brazilian defender Marcelo has been demoted to the reserves by Lyon due to "inappropriate behavior". 

Lyon revealed in a statement Marcelo's behavior in the dressing room was 'inappropriate' after the Ligue 1 side suffered a 3-0 defeat to Angers in which he scored an own goal. 

The club said the decision was "taken unanimously by Lyon's management team." They said they had told the player on Monday afternoon.

Marcelo arrived in 2017 from Istanbul club Besiktas for 7 million euros ($8.2 million)

He has played 170 games for Lyon and was a captain in the 2018-19 season.
