THE BALL – Ultras from Nice make fun of the death of Emiliano Sala (France)

The unpleasant episode happened yesterday, Wednesday, during the game between Nice and Saint-Étienne, referring to the 36th round of Ligue 1, with the Ultras of Nice singing chants about the death of Emiliano Sala, former player do Nantes, who died in a plane crash in 2019. Remember that last Saturday Nante won the Coupe de France, after beating Nice (1-0), with Sala being honored in the ninth minute.

“He’s an Argentine who doesn’t know how to swim well… Emiliano, you’re still under water…”, sang the Ultra. The situation prompted a statement from Nice, condemning the attitude of these supporters, asking for respect for Sala and his family.

Coach Christophe Galtier, in a press conference, did not hide his anger: “Sometimes it is said that what you see in the stadium is a reflection of society. If this is our society, then we’re in total s***.”
