“Thank you who do you good, even if they are your enemy!” Did the PSG ultras have knowledge of this Libyan proverb before going to Le Bourget this Sunday morning? Only certainty, the Parisian fans had fun this Sunday morning by mocking their best enemies in a way that could not be more unexpected.
Coming in large numbers to Le Bourget to encourage the Pochettino players before their flight to Marseille, the ultras certainly did not fail to remind their troops of the importance of this 100th clasico. They, who had already deployed a banner at the Camp des Loges (“we are behind you”) before the December shock in Lille, this time invited theirs “to defend our colors”.
Eyraud and “the two visions of OM”
But in the middle of songs and smoke, the Parisian fans especially deployed a banner that could not go unnoticed, as noted by RMC: “The OM of chaos, shenanigans … support for JHE”, could we thus read on this banner referring to recent statements by the Marseille president. Last week, after the invasion of the Commandery (Editor’s note: the OM training center) by several hundred Olympian supporters, Jacques-Henri Eyraud did not go all the way to criticize the management of some of his predecessors.
At the origin of the anger of the people of Marseille, Eyraud thus ensured that “two visions of OM” clashed. “There is a vision that we know, which has done great things, which has won titles, enjoyed great success, but the OM of chaos, the OM of twenty coaches in twenty years, the ‘OM sometimes shenanigans, legal chronicles, business OM ”, he explained in opposition to the OM he wishes to develop:“ a transparent OM, an open OM, an OM that cannot accept this kind of deviance ”.
Statements that have widened the gap a little more between the Olympian president and the supporters of the club. But which, probably, made the joy of the Parisian ultras. Although the gesture is obviously tinged with a beautiful irony, it is nevertheless the very first time that the Parisians have shown their support for a member of OM.
