The OM – OL classic is due to take place this weekend. But the bus carrying the Gones team was attacked, leaving Italian coach Fabio Grosso seriously injured. The actions of a tiny group of fans with no moral compass. FIFA President Gianni Infantino denounced the barbaric act in a post on his Instagram account.
“There’s absolutely no place for violence in soccer, on and off the pitch. Events such as those that took place in Marseille prior to the Ligue 1 match between Olympique de Marseille and Olympique Lyonnais have no place in our sport or in our society, and I call on the relevant authorities to ensure that the appropriate measures are taken. Without exception, in soccer, all players, coaches and fans must be able to enjoy our sport in complete safety”, declared Gianni Infantino.
