Fans rebel over the match in Marseille and Feyenoord


Marseille (France): French police intervened to stop the violent clashes between Olympique de Marseille and Feyenoord fans in view of the second leg of the European Football Conference at the Velodrome stadium on Thursday. And i media locals reported that iron bars were used in brutal attacks and the destruction of auto, as police fought to control the situation and used tear gas to disperse fans. The intensity of the fighting eased with the start of the match at eight in the evening (1900 GMT). Feyenoord manager Arne Sloot told reporters that the team bus was hit by a stone as it headed to the stadium on a long drive as police struggled to lead the Dutch team through the crowd. This is the latest in a series of mass riots in French football in this season. Sport Minister Roxana Maracignano said the future of professional football in the country is in danger after a top flight match between Olympique Lyonnais and Marseille in November was canceled due to violence. Saint-Etienne were forced to play behind closed doors this month due to fan misconduct. (Reuters)
