For once, the number 13 is having a hard time getting past La Canebière. Affected on Wednesday by Olympique de Marseille’s 13th straight defeat in the Champions League, a sad record in the competition, Marseille fans expressed their fed up on Saturday.
A few hours before the championship match against Nantes (5 p.m.), the tone rose at the exit of the Olympian training center, according to information from Téléfoot. At the initiative of the Fanatics, a hundred fans of ultras groups had met at La Commanderie, and blocked the staff bus, leaving for the Vélodrome surrounded by a police escort.
Faced with the insistence and insults fed by angry fans, coach André Villas-Boas and captain Steve Mandanda came down to discuss and try to calm tensions, after a European affront that is difficult to pass for the supporters of OM. The two men were quickly joined by their partners. After heated exchanges, the bus was finally able to leave, accompanied by hostile chants and agricultural bombs, according to RMC Sport.
