The match Bordeaux – Nîmes, which is played on Tuesday for the 16th day of Ligue 1, was interrupted, because of the presence of several dozen supporters of the Girondins de Bordeaux at the edge of the lawn.
We had been playing for about ten minutes when Girondin fans approached the pitch, forcing the referee to stop the match.
Previously, cries "Longuépée resignation" are descended from the stands of Matmut Atlantique, in reference to the president delegate, targeted for several days by a part of the supporters of Bordeaux. "For the first time in decades, our word is gagged, our freedom of expression is flouted. We are under The Tribune, we do not let go. Our freedom is not negotiable, "tweeted at the same time the Ultramarines, the main group of supporters of the Girondins.
Supporters blame club president delegate
These supporters refused to return to the podium due to the ban on the deployment of a banner against the club management. Frédéric Longuépée came down to meet these people.
At the insistence of the fans not to move from their positions, the stewards set themselves in position to repress smoothly discontented. The match resumed after a quarter of an hour of interruption by officially posting the time after 10'38 "of play.
A hundred Ultramarines had already invited Friday at the club headquarters to demand the resignation of the president delegate and the ticket manager Antony Thiodet.
The result of several months of conflict
This action, fueled by several months of conflict between the two parties over the policy pursued by the American owners, came after the revelations of the daily Sud Ouest evoking "an irreversible point of rupture" between the shareholders of the club, the funds King Street (86.4%) and GACP (13.6%).
These tensions behind the scenes should lead to the purchase of shares GACP, focused on investment, by King Street, more interested in the restructuring of the club, the commercial side and financial discipline, which the Ultramarines fear.
