Scandal at Toulouse: In my house, women don't talk to men like that

Toulouse have suspended forward Zakaria Aboukhlal for an alleged altercation with an elected official during celebrations after winning the Coupe de France.

The newspaper L'Equipe reports that the Moroccan midfielder has been allegedly involved in an altercation with Laurence Arribage, sports assistant to the Toulouse city council.

"In the face of serious allegations published by RMC Sport against Toulouse Football Club player Zakaria Aboukhlal, the Club announces that its player will be training away from the professional squad until further notice, pending the results of an internal investigation," read Toulouse's statement.

During Toulouse coach Philippe Montanier's speech amid cup celebrations at the town hall, Laurence Arribage reprimanded the players for making noise and asked them to be quiet.

"At home, women don't talk to men like that," Aboukhlal allegedly replied to the politician.

Speaking to RMC Sport, Arribage avoided further analysing what happened during the celebrations.

"The players don't really like being asked to be quiet like this," she said.

Aboukhlal, who is a Morocco international, also made headlines recently for refusing to play against Nantes in Ligue 1, in a game to promote the battle against homophobia.

"I don't think I'm the most suitable person to participate in this campaign," tweeted the Moroccan footballer.
