The supporter, guilty of a kick on Dimitri Payet during Nice-Olympique de Marseille, spoke in the columns of L’Equipe.
the Nice-Olympique de Marseille of August 22 will perhaps serve as a lesson for the actors of this pitiful telefilm broadcast on the occasion of the 3rd day of Ligue 1. Among the roles, alas, the most noticed, we remember the one played by a supporter of the Aiglons, aggressor of Dimitri Payet. When the Olympique de Marseille playmaker defended himself by returning the filled plastic bottles he was the target of, Tony C. fell off his hinges.
« I saw that he had touched a spectator in the gallery. I think that’s what sparked the sequel “, He explained to the police during his interrogation, two days after the meeting. Posted this Saturday in The team, excerpts from his hearing reveal how the 28-year-old man tried to clear himself.

If he acknowledges having made a ” bullshit », He confides that by entering the lawn of the Allianz Riviera at 72e minute he had no intention of hitting Payet but only “ ask for explanations. ” Is that so ? He also justified the throwing of bottles at each Marseille corner by a habit taken in stadiums in France and especially at the Vélodrome, he underlines.
If we follow his reasoning, it was almost normal for Payet to receive projectiles but inadmissible, on the other hand, that he is vigilant in defending himself … Tony also explained that he had received death threats on social networks after this extremely rare slippage in sports enclosures. He also made no secret of having emptied a few cans of beer before the meeting.
