Seat thrown by a Lyonnais on the head of Lucas, 11 years old: PSG files a complaint against X


After a young Parisian supporter was hit in the skull by a piece of siege thrown by a Lyon supporter last Sunday, PSG have

Last Sunday, during PSG - Lyon (2-1), the young Lucas, 11, came for the first time to the Parc des Princes, with his father, to encourage Lionel Messi and the Parisians, ended up in the infirmary after to have received, during the second period, a seat on the top of the head.

The object came from the visitor park next to which the young boy was seated.

Victim of a slight head trauma, he was able to attend the last five minutes of the match after going to the stadium infirmary, before returning home, shocked and disappointed.

On Tuesday, PSG contacted Lucas's family to offer him compensation in the form of places in the VIP Square for an upcoming match.

At the same time, the club's security service took charge of the case in order to identify the perpetrator.

Discussions with OL leaders as well as with the police are ongoing.

PSG also, according to our information, decided to file a complaint against X on Thursday.

Lucas's family should do the same.

It must be said that this incident falls badly, especially in a particularly stormy context at the start of the season in Ligue 1 with many incidents between supporters.

The Parc des Princes is indeed considered today as a particularly secure stadium and Lucas's mishap remains a fortunately exceptional fact.

PSG thus provides 1,300 stewards per match, a figure unparalleled in Europe.

Twenty-nine of them take place in the parking lot of visiting supporters.

A protective net separates this space from the Boulogne stand located to its left.

On the right, a two-meter high separation marks the division with the Paris stand where Lucas and his father were seated.

Two rows of seats are also neutralized on each side.

The seats will be replaced

"There is no net on the right because there is no rivalry between the visitors' kop and the Paris stand", we point out at the club where we notice that "this device exists for more than three years and despite the arrival of numerous Ultras, he had never been caught failing ”.

However to avoid precisely the type of incident of last Sunday, where a Lyonnais managed to tear part of a seat, the club had initiated some time ago a new security of the visitors area by replacing all the seats for install metal “that cannot be detached from the ground”.

The work will be carried out in the coming months.

On the side of PSG, we also highlight that now, at the Parc des Princes, 20% of spectators are under 18, which underlines the safe and family side of the enclosure.

As for Lucas, he is waiting to find out what the club has in store for him.

"In the past, we have been able to demonstrate on many subjects that we knew very well how to take care of our fans," we say internally.

When a child, or even an adult, goes through something, it is taken very, very seriously.
