Tensions were running high on Wednesday evening after Red Star drew with Nancy (1-1) on the 10th day of the French national championship. Firstly, between the players. Tempers flared, particularly after the Audonian pulled Nancy’s hair. Things also got heated between Red Star players and some Lorraine supporters. This was due to the racist shouts made by some Marcel Picot spectators towards three players from the Paris region.

Three of my players were called out by the stand with mimes and monkey cries. Some people tell me that in a stadium you shouldn’t make things worse, Habib Beye lamented after the match to Canal+, adding: I’ll always be against that. These things can’t happen. It’s unacceptable, and what’s more, the Nancy players waved to their fans. If we accept that kind of behavior… I don’t. I’ll always fighthe time to discuss things calmly and take the necessary sanctions. Just because we’re Nancy and I’m ‘only’ BenoĆ®t Pedretti doesn’t mean we’re going to do nothing about the big Red Star and Mr. Habib Beye.
