"Jerome has a bite on his cheek. I was in the dressing room; I didn't see anything. It's a shame the post-match will tarnish the game," he said.

On his part, Prior, who is at Valenciennes from Bordeaux exuded confidence justice will be served.

But in an apparent defence of his wards, Sochaux boss Omar Dad said the mayhem was started by Valenciennes.

He cited insults from their opponents' camp as key among the factors that contributed to the fight.

"A player doesn't go crazy without something happening first. I heard insults at the end of the match. There was a lot of provocation, but you have to have more control," he noted.

The match finished in a goalless draw as Sochaux extended their unbeaten streak in the French second tier league.
