Enyeama condemns Lille pitch invaders

Around 200 home fans came down from the stands behind one end of the ground

Lille is in danger of being relegated from the French Ligue 1 and sit second from bottom with 28 points from 29 games.

TV footage showed supporters surging towards the Lille players and aiming kicks at some of them after the final whistle of the Ligue 1 match. Some of the players were also directly physically attacked before security officers could intervene and escort the players to safety.

The last time losc had fans on the pitch was for celebration.

According to ESPN, striker Nicolas Pepe and defender Adam Soumaoro were struck as stewards attempted to prevent fans storming the tunnel.

Enyeama has been frozen out of the Lille first team this season and hasn't featured for the team since he returned from injury.

"You're dirtying our jersey, you're dirtying our jersey", they chanted at the squad along with a message to the club hierarchy: "If we go down, we'll take you down".

But, instead, Lille is in 19th place and fighting to avoid relegation with only nine games left.

Club president Gerard Lopez watched from the stands. But finally the fans backed off to the stands.

Lille manager Christophe Galtier says he understands the fans' frustrations but labelled their actions on Saturday as unacceptable.

"They are fans who lost control, but they are also fans who are unhappy and sad", Galtier is quoted as saying by ESPN. "I don't accept that my players are punched, that my players are treated this way".
