The incidents of fan disorder have seen a massive rise in numbers in France over the last few seasons, with Marseille president Pablo Longoria stating that he would leave the club if the crowd troubles earned them a ban from European competition.

According to what is reported by L’Équipe, one Marseille supporter has been indicted for the attempted murder of an Eintracht Frankfurt fan after one of the projectiles, a flare, hit the German fan in the neck at the Vélodrome stadium during Frankfurt’s visit to Marseille on September 13. 

The 65-year-old male supporter from Germany sustained a serious injury and was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment. The Marseille public prosecutor’s office immediately opened investigations into “the counts of attempted murder, intentional violence, participation in a criminal association as well as the possession and use of rockets or fireworks within a sports arena.”

On October 19, the local police caught the perpetrator accused of throwing pyrotechnic devices at the away supporters. He was subsequently indicted on all the charges mentioned above.

Giving the account of his miserable experience, Michael Brehl, the German supporter who is still hospitalized in Germany, revealed, “The surgeons talk about my wound as if it were a gunshot wound. I still can’t grab things with my left hand. I was immediately paralyzed on one side (after being hit) and asked my girlfriend if my arm was still there. It was apocalyptic. I was fully conscious all the time. Now, I have to deal with this psychologically.“
