The general manager of RC Lens looks back on the incidents against Lille

Damaged by incidents that occurred at half-time, the Northern derby won by Racing Club de Lens against Lille (1-0) gave French football a very bad image, after the events that occurred at the Allianz Riviera during of Nice-OM on August 22. Present at a press conference, Arnaud Pouille, the director general of Sang et Or, spoke about the clashes that he strongly condemns: “I have a clear idea of ​​what happened. But I don’t want to influence anyone by speaking out. It is not under our authority. There were a few actions that ignited the powder and a reaction that is damaging. But in these cases, speaking out is complicated because whatever you say, you make it feel like you want to influence. We condemn any act of violence. There are proceedings that are ongoing. At the level of the LFP, at the level of justice, there will be complaints filed by the club, and by the opposing club also from what I understood. In this tumultuous framework of half-time, we must salute the speed of the delegates, the prefectural authorities, who made it possible to resume the meeting relatively quickly. “

A context that he considers however very different from that experienced in Nice: “I won’t talk about Nice-OM, it’s not the same circumstances at all. Now these are events that occur very closely. There were no players in the game affected, the main events took place at half-time. Yes, there will certainly be a convocation by the disciplinary committee, we will discuss with them at that time. ”
