PSG president’s car attacked after Nantes victory

Nasser Al-Khelaifi

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi’s car came under fire from a barrage of stones as he left Nantes’ Stade de la Beaujoire on Saturday, according to reports on Sunday.

Champions PSG had extended their lead at the top of Ligue 1 following a 4-1 victory but “around 20 fans from the Brigade Loire group” pelted the Qatari chief’s car as he left, according to newspaper Le Parisien.

“The management of FC Nantes apologizes to the Paris Saint-Germain president and condemns the actions of several individuals who attacked the Parisian official’s car as it left the stadium,” said a statement on Nantes’ website.

Police in Nantes confirmed to AFP that stones had been thrown at a car by “unknown individuals”.

No official complaint has been made to police and PSG declined to comment on the story when contacted by AFP.

However, Le Parisien claimed the missiles were thrown at the car because the attackers thought Nantes president Waldemar Kita was inside.

Nantes condemned the accusations made against the Brigade Loire supporters’ group, which also claimed on the club’s website that they had nothing to do with the attack.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Edinson Cavani, Angel Di Maria and Serge Aurier scored the goals for PSG as the reigning champions came from behind to win the game.
