England: a French player from Crystal Palace hit in the head by a bottle throw

Led at half-time, Crystal Palace tore off to win (1-2) on the lawn of Milwall, this Saturday, during the 3rd round of the FA Cup. But this success was marred by the behavior of opposing supporters, who hit young Frenchman Michael Olise in the head with a bottle, as he was about to take a corner kick. Later in the match, his teammate Connor Gallagher suffered homophobic chants.

Author of a superb strike rolled up from the left to allow his team to return to the score, in the 46th, the winger was scolded for the first time by the opposing supporters. He then delivered an assist to another Blue, Jean-Philippe Mateta to allow his team to take the lead. A nice sporting performance that was not to the taste of Lions fans, who threw several bottles at him when he was about to take a corner in the second half.

Hit in the back of the head by one of them, the young winger, 20, did not get carried away and simply kicked the bottle before returning to hit the corner. Milwall fans also sadly distinguished themselves by insulting Gallagher and hissing as some players dropped to their knees to take a stand against racism. “This is not something we want to see in a stadium, regretted Patrick Vieira, coach of Crystal Palace. Getting down on the knee is something to be proud of. “
