Dortmund-PSG: Beye targeted by homophobic chants


By: Manu Tournoux

OM stamp, Canal+ commentator Habib Beye was greeted with hostile and homophobic chants by Parisian supporters this Wednesday in Dortmund.

Although he completed his last year of training at PSG before signing his first professional contract in Strasbourg, Habib Beye is best known for having defended the colors of OM four seasons during his football career. A past that the supporters of the capital club have obviously not forgotten…

Today a commentator for Canal+, the former Senegalese international, who officiated this Wednesday evening on the C1 match between Dortmund and Paris, was welcomed by a song sadly known in the aisles of the Parc des Princes and imported for the occasion at Signal Iduna Park. An anti-Marseillais song with homophobic lyrics.

This season after the Classic between PSG and OM at the Parc, such songs were sung – which caused excitement among the Minister of Sports Amélie Oudéa-Castéra. The Disciplinary Commission of the Professional Football League took up the matter and finally imposed a firm suspension of one match – and one more suspended match – on the Auteuil stand.
