Former Lotto-Soudal manager Marc Sergeant has laid into outgoing CEO John Lelangue in a thinly veiled tweet, saying he had put a hole in a beautiful ship. It was announced yesterday (Thurs) that Lelangue, who has been at the Belgian team since 2018, would leave, apparently by mutual consent.

Sergeant, who left Lotto at the end of last year after 15 years at the team, didn't name Lelangue in his tweet, but there was absolutely no mistaking who it was aimed at.
