Marseille fans storm training ground to protest


Some of Marseille fans stormed into the team’s training ground hours before a Ligue 1 game against Rennes on Saturday as they protested against the club’s officials.

French multimedia outlet RMC Sport reported that some 150-200 supporters tried to break into the Robert Louis Dreyfus centre.

Footage on RMC Sport’s twitter feed showed some of the fans forcing their way in. Some were seen throwing flares and lighting firecrackers.

The outlet published footage of fans marching in the streets and carrying banners reading “[Club] directors, out”, as well as others directly targeting OM president Jacques-Henri Eyraud.

The entrance of the training ground was also tagged with messages against Eyraud.

It then reported the situation had calmed down, without elaborating.
