The bottle-throw to which the Marseille N.10 suffered at Groupama Stadium resulted in the stoppage of the match, which had started less than five minutes ago.

Payet had already been hit by a bottle of water in August during a match in Nice.

“Of course, someone who suffers two assaults is not pleasant, he is affected.

I don't know how the supporter is doing.

It's hard to know how someone will feel when they are attacked every time they hit a corner, ”added the Argentinian technician.

"How many times will we have to live it?


“Dimitri is important to us. If he is ready, he will play, otherwise he will leave his place to someone, ”Sampaoli said again.

The OM coach also reconsidered the decision to stop the Lyon match, taken after nearly two hours of waiting, and the upcoming disciplinary decisions, expected on December 8.

But already after Nice, it had taken a long time.

There the facts very clear.

We cannot play politics on this and we have to put an end to it as quickly as possible, ”he said.

“You have to be firm, the president of Lyon himself said it after Nice.

We have experienced this three times.

How many times will we have to live it?

We must define the role of each and prevent this from turning into a political circus that would benefit the one who has the most power, not the justice, ”he said.
