According to information from Ouest France and 20 Minutes, several dozen hooded people burst into the spans of the Beaujoire, a few hours after the final whistle of the return dam between Nantes and Toulouse. Staff were targeted.
Despite the maintenance obtained narrowly this Sunday, the climate was tense in La Beaujoire, near Nantes, a few hours after the end of the match against Toulouse (1-0) in the return jump-off. According to information from West France and 20 Minutes, between 30 and 40 hooded people burst into the stadium.
An individual would have been arrested
“They forced the gate which leads to the technical tunnel, went through the edge of the lawn and joined the terrace where we were,” explains an employee at 20 Minutes. Fights broke out with members of FC Nantes staff and equipment was degraded. An individual was reportedly arrested, while the police quickly went to the scene.
“FC Kita, we don’t want it” or “Give us back FC Nantes”, sang some 1,000 club supporters last Sunday, a few hours before the last Ligue 1 match of the season against Montpellier, demanding the departure of Waldemar Kita. Symbolically, the supporters also organized the funeral of “FC Kita”.
The coffin buried last Sunday did not stay underground for long. The management came this Sunday to dig it up to exhume it after the maintenance obtained, as reported by 20 minutes. The evening’s violent actions may have been done as revenge.
Asked earlier in the evening at the microphone of Canal +, Waldemar Kita had confided to having lived “a tiring season mentally and physically”. It is a new episode of tension which is therefore added to the long list of this season, which nevertheless ended on a positive note from a sporting point of view.
