From Nicaragua where he lives, Alain Orsoni, the president of AC Ajaccio, says he is "horrified" after the attack Saturday night by supporters of the Kenzo club, child of 8 years, Marseille fan and cancer in a box of the Francois-Coty stadium.
"I quickly had a statement drafted. Che vergogna! (What a shame!) ... We condemn with the greatest firmness, protests Alain Orsoni. I apologize to Kenzo and his family. This ignominy is not in line with the values of our club and Corsica. At home, we have great respect for the elderly and children. A sick child... What happened is just horrible... Since I found out what happened, I've been on the phone to sort it out. The little one had already come to our home 15 days ago at the initiative of the Rotary Club and Madam President of Air Corscia. We had received him with all the respect due to the difficult situation he is going through. We are very sensitive to that. On Saturday night, after taking care of him, we took him to the locker room and he was able to see his OM idols. »

The president of the ACA also regrets "the general context" that surrounded the meeting. "We will also quickly ask for a meeting with the Prefect. We had incurred a lot of security costs for this game. We were promised 100 mobile guards but there were only five... When the little one was attacked in the boxes, we had a slight delay because our security guys had just been attacked by 200 supporters, well I do not call them that, from the kop of OM. On our side, we had 11 wounded. What happens in the stands in France, it becomes very serious... »
