An unpleasant episode took place yesterday Wednesday in a match between Nice and Saint-Étienne, referring to the 36th round of Ligue 1, and Nice’s ultras sang in the song about the death of Emiliano Sala, a former player do Nantes who died in a plane crash in 2019. Remember last Saturday in Nante won the Coupe de France after winning Nice (1-0), and Sala got the honor in the ninth minute.
“She’s Argentinian who can’t swim well … Emiliano, you’re still under water …” Ultra sang. The situation received a nice statement condemning the attitude of these fans and asking for respect for Sala and her family.

Coach Christophe Galtier did not hide his anger at the press conference: “Sometimes it is said that what you see in a stadium is a reflection of society. If this is our society, we’re totally fucked. ”
