No regrets for Fekir after provocative celebration in Lyon’s derby triumph

Published: 2017/11/06
Saint-Etienne supporters invaded the pitch against Lyon as Nabil Fekir celebrated the visitors’ fifth goal, but the player had no regrets.
Nabil Fekir insists he does not regret the goal celebration that prompted Saint-Etienne fans to invade the pitch and cause a lengthy delay late in Lyon’s 5-0 derby win.


A section of the Saint-Etienne support had targeted the Lyon players on their arrival at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard and the mood did not improve as the visitors tore their rivals to shreds.


Fekir scored twice, while Memphis Depay, Mariano and Bertrand Traore were also on target, and the home crowd then reacted angrily when the Lyon captain took off his shirt to point to his name – as Lionel Messi famously did for Barcelona at Real Madrid last season.
