Lyon: a lynch miner

This season, Lyon is not spared by the controversies…

Another sad episode for French football. While hosting Olympique Lyonnais in the Gambardella Cup on Sunday, the Canet-en-Roussillon club denounced the attack on a 17-year-old fan by a ten Lyon supporters.

We welcomed a group of around fifty Lyon supporters, which was not planned , told the general manager of the Canet club, Jordi Delclos, France Bleu. During the meeting, everything went very well, there was nothing to complain about during the 90 minutes . But the situation escalated after the final whistle.

He got beat up, he got mugged

A sweater in the colors of Olympique de Marseille worn by the young Canet fan would be the origin of this aggression. He got beaten up, he got mugged. Then they undressed him, they took his sweater off, leaving him shirtless, and they took his personal belongings. , explained the leader of the southern club. Hit in the back and in the neck, the teenager had to be transported to the emergency room. According to Delclos, his mother will file a complaint .

This aggression obviously recalls the strong tensions around the rivalry between Lyon and Marseille. Tensions which have only been accentuated this season with the famous episode of the bottle launched in the head of Dimitri Payet at Groupama Stadium, on November 21. The Canet club confirms that a minor was hit by several OL supporters because he was wearing an OM jersey. I am deeply shocked by this news and give my full support to this young boy hospitalized tonight reacted the director of communication of OM, Jacques Cardoze, on Twitter.

Lyon plays the appeasement card

Faced with several outbursts from its supporters this season (against OM in the league then Paris FC in the Coupe de France), the Rhone club wants to avoid a new fire. Time is for peace and thoughts for the youngster, replied OL in a press release. We change with his family and the club. We will take the necessary measures at our level. The individuals were not in a club move. Let’s work with justice, without partisanship, without overbidding. In a complicated season, Lyon did not need a new controversy…
