Mathieu Olivier breaks the silence on his dirty punch on Arber Xhekaj

MATHIEU OLIVIER BREAKS THE SILENCE ON HIS DIRTY PUNCH ON ARBER XHEKAJ

NOV 21, 2022  (12H46)      MARCO
In last Thursday's game between the Tricolore and the Blue Jackets, Suzuki's team managed to come back from behind with two seconds left in the second period. A fight between Arber Xhekaj and Mathieu Olivier immediately followed.


You will notice that the Jackets player punches Xhekaj in the head while he is already on the floor. This is a very bad move, because even if strongmen hit each other, there is still a code of honor to respect.




Mathieu Olivier tried to explain his gesture, but let's say it's quite hard to believe, especially because the blow clearly went off when Xhekaj was on the ground. We'll give him the benefit of the doubt...

"I held back my right at the end with Xhekaj. I didn't want to make contact with his head. In the moment, you're on adrenaline for sure."

WAS IT A DIRTY HIT BY OLIVIER?
