Marcelo was caught laughing during captain Leo Dubois’s speech to rally the troops after the match, which did not go well with coach Peter Boss and sporting director Juninho.
However, according to ESPN sources, Marcelo was also disciplined by the club for frequent farting among his dressing-room teammates and laughing in the presence of Juninho and Bose.
Marcelo was considered one of the team leaders and signed a new contract a few months before the start of the season, but the club described his actions after the loss of Angers as “inappropriate behaviour”.
The defender’s contract with Lyon was terminated at the end of January and he joined Bordeaux.
Bordeaux finds itself at the bottom of the Ligue 1 table, seven points from the safety zone, with two games remaining.
