maigaModibo Maiga was supposed to be on the Metz bench over weekend to face Marseille but according to reports went missing.

As a result Metz played with only six substitutes on their bench in a game they lost 3-1.

Maiga’s  absence has not been explained by coach Albert Cartier who remains tight lipped.
