Valenciennes coach Antoine Kombouare will refuse to shake hands with match officials prior to Saturday´s match at Caen as a protest against what he deems "authoritarianism and arrogance" of referees.

Kombouare was sent to the stands for the second time this season and third in a little more than a year in Sunday´s 2-1 defeat to Lyon for arguing against a refereeing decision.

"I am not going to shake the hands of the referees (on Saturday)," Kombouare said. "I want to show how fed up I am and my indignation. I am protesting against this form of discrimination against me."
