This should not calm the controversy. A week after the homophobic chants sung by Parisian fans during the match of PSG at the Parc des Princes against Marseille (4-0), Rennes ultras have sadly signaled themselves by similar chants during the meeting between Rennes and Nantes, Sunday at Roazhon Park, during this derby counting for the 7th day of Ligue 1.
In the 21st minute of the match, while Rennes led 1-0 after a penalty from Benjamin Bourigeaud, supporters of the Roazhon Celtic Kop sang songs aimed at the Nantes, but also one of the players of the Canaries, Matthis Abline.
A banner reading "Abline, a one-way trip" was also waved in the same stand, referring to the departure this summer of the 20-year-old, loaned to the Canaries for the season. In response, part of the stadium whistled the chants aimed at the player.

This incident comes a week after the events at the Parc des Princes which had led to many reactions. Sports Minister Amélie Oudéa-Castéra regretted that the meeting had not been interrupted following the chants. Convened by the disciplinary committee of the Professional Football League (LFP), the leaders of PSG will be heard Thursday.
