Marseille’s disappointing 1-1 draw against Metz on Friday night was marred by an altercation between two VIP supporters in the stands.
The match itself was a frustrating affair for the home side, who were unable to capitalize on their numerical advantage after Metz defender Samuel Gigot was sent off in the first half.
Faris Moumbagna gave Marseille the lead early in the second half, but their joy was short-lived as Matthieu Udol headed in an equalizer for Metz just minutes later.
The tension in the stadium was palpable after the goal, and it boiled over when two Marseille supporters began arguing heatedly in the VIP section.
The exchange was captured on video and quickly went viral, with many fans expressing their disappointment at the behavior of those involved.
The incident is a reflection of the growing frustration among Marseille fans with the state of the club.
Marseille have not won a Ligue 1 match in 2024, and currently sit in 10th place in the table.
Manager Gennaro Gattuso has come under fire for his team’s poor form, and his future at the club is uncertain.
The club’s hierarchy have been urged to take action to improve the team’s fortunes, and it remains to be seen whether they will be able to do so before it’s too late.
