Olympique de Marseille have been handed a paltry £28,569 (32,500€) fine by UEFA following disturbances involving their supporters at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium last month (DailyMail).
Tottenham began their Champions League Group D campaign by hosting the French outfit in north London and won the match courtesy of a second-half brace from summer signing Richarlison.
Marseille fans began throwing a few missiles at Spurs fans, before escalating into a fight with stewards which saw riot police have to enter the away end to de-escalate the situation.
Some of their supporters were also seen pulling down a pride flag inside the stadium.
UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body announced on Friday that Marseille had been fined £13,186 for the throwing of objects and £13,186 for crowd disturbances as well as £2,197 for the lighting of fireworks.
Tottenham also received a fine of £5,271 for the throwing of objects by some of their fans who had reacted to being pelted by those in the away end, the Daily Mail confirmed.
Spurs Web Opinion:
Recent events have proven this was not an isolated incident among Marseille supporters who also have caused problems against Eintracht Frankfurt which has led to them having to play against closed doors when they host Sporting, followed by a partial stadium closure when Spurs visit the south of France.
