‘I Found It Inappropriate’ – Former Marseille Player and Manager Weren’t Fans of the PSG Trolling by Payet

After Paris Saint-Germain fell 1-0 to FC Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League final, supporters of Olympique de Marseille flooded the streets in celebration, making it seem as though they were the champions of Europe. 

Nonetheless, they were enjoying putting some salt in the wound of PSG supporters. The banter didn’t stop at the supporters, current Marseille forward Dimitri Payet took to Twitter to troll Les Parisiens, as did former striker Andre-Pierre Gignac. 

Focusing on these antics by Payet, it didn’t sit well with RMC Sport consultants Éric Di Meco and Rolland Courbis. Both were on the show Top of the Foot to discuss that matter. 

Di Meco, an ex-Marseille player who spent 14 seasons with the club, said that he has a problem with players like Payet who use social media to troll PSG even though they’ve yet to leave a mark on Les Phocéens. 

“I have a problem, which is perhaps a problem of generation. I have trouble with chambering via social networks by players inactivity or recently passed and who appropriate the history of the club without necessarily having marked it,” Di Meco said. 

The ex-Marseille player isn’t alone with that sentiment. Courbis, whos is a former manager of Les Phocéens also stated similar thoughts.

“I found that inappropriate, I agree with Eric. I was not expecting it at all, I was surprised and frankly a little disappointed,” Courbis said. “As much as I find it funny, between supporters, to stay in rooms, but there that active players express themselves as that, I found it inappropriate.”
