According to Jorvinik, “the story is settled”
The two partners got confused and got involved in a friendly match against Kortrijk (1-1), on July 17, and were disqualified from that encounter. Zika had apologized on social media: “I apologize to the fans And the club for this situation. Everyone who knows me knows that I am not aggressive at all. He said I can have a strong personality but always have good intentions,” saying he simply wanted to “defend” himself.

The story has been settled,” he told the team. The president (Olivier Letang, editor’s note) received the players, Zika and Thiago Dagalo, and I was also there with Sylvain Armand (sports coordinator), who is with us every day. We must be able to Avoid it because the club’s image is not very good. I think the players have realized that they have to use their energy to beat opponents and not fight between us.”
