Hundreds of Marseille fans have stormed their training ground to protest their poor results and to call for the club President to be sacked.
It’s beginning to look like a warzone in France with the players coming together to charge at the Robert Louis-Dreyfus Centre training ground ahead of the clubs match with Rennes this evening.
Their club hasn’t won any of their last 4 games and were knocked out of the Champions League after finishing bottom of their group with just one win from six games.
They are protesting their president and want to see Jacques-Henri Eyraud out of the club immediately to change their form.

The fans lit trees on fire in front of the ground before smashing through the gates and breaking barriers, they reportedly left off smoke bombs.
It’s understandable to be angry at your club in a run of poor form but these fans have taken it way too far in their search for Ligue 1 success.
