Lille Fans Attack Players After Montpellier Clash

Lille’s Ligue 1 clash against Montpellier ended in chaos when home fans invaded the pitch and accosted players on Saturday.

The hosts were held 1-1 in a tight encounter, with Nicolas Pepe’s first-half goal for Lille cancelled out after the break by Montpellier.

But the real drama began after the final whistle, when Lille fans streamed down from the stands to attack their own players.

Pepe in particular found himself the target of aggression, while the rest of the team were barracked on their way back to the dressing rooms.

All of this happened under the watchful eyes of Lille owner Gerard Lopez and sporting director Marc Ingla, who were present in the stadium as it unfolded.
