Marseille travelled to Lille on Tuesday afternoon by plane, and when OM touched down at the airport a group of local supporters were waiting in order to abuse former Lille defender Florian Thauvin.

20-year-old Thauvin was sold to Marseille last summer for 15 million euros after having never played for Lille following a breakdown in relations between the player and the club.

Pissed at Thauvin, a hoard of Lille fans chanted abused as the player appeared at the arrivals, at which point a coach of Marseille came to the defence of the player by getting physical with the locals.

After a brief scuffle the Lille supporters scarpered.
