MONACO’S LACINA TRAORE was in the thick of things in their 10-2 win over near-neighbours St Jean Beauliu in the French Cup yesterday evening.

The Ivorian, who spent a short spell on loan at Everton in 2014, scored four times in 24 minutes before being dismissed along with opponent Yann Mariotti for an apparent exchange at half-time.

“[Lacina] told the other player: ‘Shut your mouth.’ I’ll be very interested to know the justification from the referee,” Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim said afterwards.

Even after Traore’s exit, Monaco still proved a cut above – Fabinho scoring a brace from the spot as they romped to victory.
