It was after the game that the most serious incidents occurred, he explains. “When we left the stadium there were groups of 30 characters running around (…) big herds,” he explains. “Some had weapons, machetes, knives, iron bars, bats…” he adds. Paddy Pimblett details the roguish method. “They threw people on the ground, they stole their watches and their belongings (…) they grabbed them, pulled them towards them and cut their straps to snatch their bag and run away.” The main location of the trap was a bridge that had to be crossed and on which supporters were beaten and robbed.

Even more disturbing, Paddy Pimblett evokes the passivity of the police near the fans’ buses but attacked by thugs, “they continued their way along the passing road as if nothing had happened”. “I will never return to this stadium again”, he concludes and even if he returns to Paris it will only be to stay in the center of the city.
