Despite Bordeaux completing a 1-0 upset over the five-time French champions and this season's runaway leaders, Jemmali - whose contract expires in the summer - expressed anger and frustration at his omission.
“People ask me how I feel, and I honestly answer that I feel like somebody has made the decision on my behalf that I was tired," he told Sud-Ouest. "I feel that I have been treated like an outcast."
“Who is right and who is wrong?" the 32-year-old right-sided defender continued. "We won, I am happy for my team-mates. But I don't want to hold the trophy and to celebrate in a nightclub.

“I was happy for my partners, for the fans and for the club. But my only aim was to get back to Bordeaux quickly in order to join my daughter. If I was 25, it wouldn't be a big deal, I would have the chance to play other finals. But today, that makes me crazy.
“Thankfully nobody came to talk to me after the match because I could have been rude to them.”
A goal from defender Henrique gave Bordeaux the win, denying Lyon a domestic double.
