The Montpellier leader notably returned to the sanctions to be taken to stem the acts of violence which have broken out in the stadiums of France since the start of the Ligue 1 season.

Penalize those guilty of incidents and not the clubs

Laurent Nicollin knows the subject: during the first day of the championship in early August, the Montpellier-Marseille match played at the Mosson stadium was interrupted after bottles were thrown at Marseille players.

"To tell you, the person who had thrown something, there was a reminder of the law, no more", recalls the leader.

"At some point, if there are no sanctions, it's in the image of society," he says, aware that the regulations must be toughened.

Laurent Nicollin evokes the "financial penalty" to make those responsible for these jets think more.

"The clubs have suffered financial losses. If tomorrow it is an association of supporters or the person who takes sanctions, perhaps they will think twice before doing something stupid", explains the Montpellier leader on Europe 1.
