Demont goes off the wall once more

JUST weeks after losing the Lens captaincy for fighting with a team-mate, defender Yohan Demont faces a spell on the sidelines after he injured himself punching a wall in the dressing-room.

Demont apparently lost his temper with another team-mate, Tunisian international Issam Jemma, who reportedly interrupted a conversation between Demont and assistant coach Michel Ettore.

According to one report, Demont accused Jemma of "lacking education" before taking out his frustration on a nearby wall and breaking his knuckles in the process.

Demont had recently made headlines after he was stripped of the captaincy for scrapping with Serbian international Nenad Kovacevic following Lens' defeat to Sochaux. Maybe the Frenchman should just drop the 't' on his surname so he can be more at ease with himself.
