Following the overflows that occurred during the Classico against the PSG (0-0), the OM took drastic measures against its personnel. Five stadiers were dismissed by the Olympian club.
OM: Five stadiers were dismissed after the Classico
Last weekend, Olympique de Marseille stood up to the championship leader, PSG. The two rivals left each other on a scoreless draw (0-0). If the Olympians got a good point against the Parisian ogre, a deplorable event marred the smooth running of this show. Incidents broke out in the Velodrome. The Parisians were the target of projectiles thrown from the stands, while many smoke bombs were lit, leaving an artificial fog in the stadium.
A spectator also burst onto the pitch to stop a dangerous counterattack by the Parisians, led by Lionel Messi. The young man was then evacuated from the field by several stewards. Minor and undocumented, the supporter is doing rather well since he received a simple reminder to the law. On the other hand, Olympique de Marseille has taken drastic sanctions against five stadiers, present in the area from which the individual arose. The latter were dismissed. “They will no longer intervene on the matches, they have been taken out of the OM system and dismissed by their company”, indicated the OM to the newspaper crew.
Supporters sentenced to prison terms
In addition, half a dozen supporters were arrested by the police during the violent incidents in front of the Velodrome. They were sentenced to sentences of up to two years in prison, accompanied by stadium bans. Recall that OM has already been sanctioned twice this season by the PSL disciplinary commission for incidents that occurred in Nice and then in Angers. Since these sad events, the Phocaean club is under the threat of withdrawal of a point in the ranking in case of recurrence.
