OGC Nice reacted quickly after learning that some of its supporters present during the match against AS Saint-Etienne had sung a song mocking Emiliano Sala, the Argentinian striker from Nantes who died in 2019.
” OGC Nice condemns in the strongest terms the song about Emiliano Sala heard on Wednesday evening at the Allianz Riviera. The club does not recognize its values or those of the entire red and black family in this unthinkable and abject provocation of a minority of its supporters. OGC Nice sends its support to the family and loved ones of Emiliano Sala “, said the Riviera club in a press release after this incident which sickened everyone.
I heard, of course, “He’s an Argentinian who doesn’t swim well… Emiliano underwater…”? What a shame. What a lack of respect from the Nice supporters for the family of Emiliano Sala. To vomit 🤢pic.twitter.com/cezorRP5r1
