They sing ‘It’s us Charleroi’ but that’s not Charleroi”, he laments.

“I am disgusted”

Mehdi Bayat expected action from a fringe of the Carolos Ultras: “They warned the management and the staff, they came to say what they were going to do tonight … I don’t know what to say. .. I don’t know what to say anymore… I’m disgusted… At the same time, you have to be strong. The stadium whistled them this evening, the public was outraged, all of Belgium will be scandalized and Charleroi will unfortunately be targeted”, bitterly regrets the leader.

“Where are we going?”

“We now stop matches even when we win? No but where are we going? All this to show that they have control? Ah well bravo… We gave the power to the supporters, we must review these regulations. This regulation gives the power to the supporters”, he enrages (continued below).
