OL-OM incidents: Marseille’s appeal rejected by FFF

“We will be around the stadium and there is no answer to anything”
“It is a reprehensible decision if this match is upheld given the stakes of this match, the invincibility, its historical side, but beyond that it is incomprehensible to the game equity that this match plays,” Ultramarine spokesman Florian Brunet, questioned by RMC Sport. If the meeting continues, there is a fear of supporters gathering.
“We don’t answer anymore, people are extremely angry, Florian Brunet continues. The Marseille match was expected by thousands of Bordelis. Friday, it is out of the question that we stay at home if the match is scheduled. We surround the stadium We appeal to all the competent authorities, we have to bring it back to logic. In the current slowdown, we do not need to add to the security problems that will inevitably arise on Friday.”
