Video: Lyon stars forced to face furious dressing down from fans after PSG defeat: ‘Don’t defile the shirt’


Remarkable footage stemming from the aftermath of the showdown between Paris Saint-Germain and Olympique Lyonnais has come to the fore on Sunday evening.

For those who may have missed it, two of French football’s top clubs locked horns once more a short time ago.

The matchup in question saw champions PSG make the trip to the Groupama Stadium, eyeing a 2nd successive Ligue 1 victory at the expense of struggling Lyon.

And, when all was said and done, this is precisely what Luis Enrique’s troops marched on to.

An explosive first-half display saw PSG all but out of sight come the half-time whistle, owing to goals on the part of all of Kylian Mbappe (2), Achraf Hakimi, and Marco Asensio.

Lyon, to their credit, did manage to pull one back through Corentin Tolisso on the other side of the interval, but the damage had long been done.

On the back of the full-time whistle bringing proceedings to a close in eastern France, it should, in turn, come as little surprise to hear of the hosts’ supporters being up in arms.

Lyon, incredibly, now sit dead bottom of the Ligue 1 table, with just a solitary point to show for their efforts across a quartet of fixtures.

Unacceptable for a club of such stature, the OL faithful therefore tonight took matters into their own hands.

Calling upon the club’s stars to face them post-match, the ‘Bad Gones’ ultras made their feelings crystal clear, making use of a megaphone to tear into Laurent Blanc’s squad.

As the players looked on, looking like embarrassed children in the thick of a dressing down from parents, they were accused of ‘defiling’ the Lyon jersey, and outright demanded to step up performances with immediate effect.
