Spain-based group Mediapro, the main broadcaster of Ligue 1 matches via its French Telefoot channel, is confronted by financial difficulties and has been forced to place itself under the protection of the commercial court of Nanterre, according to information gathered by Les Echos. France's football league governing body LFP has reportedly agreed to the mediation process, while moving to take on a loan so that Ligue 1 clubs can receive their usual payments.
