Among the German hooligans in Cologne who engaged in violence on Thursday before the Europa League Conference match against Nice (1-1) at the Allianz Riviera are supporters of PSG, including independents from Virage Auteuil.
A former Supra has been identified on the many videos and photos taken of the fights in the stands of Nice. It would be a certain Romain L, who had been acquitted by the Paris Assize Court in 2016 in the death trial of Yann Lorence.
Roman. L., already sentenced to prison
Member of the Tribune Boulogne, Yann Lorence had been lynched in front of the Auteuil corner of the Parc des Princes before a PSG-OM in February 2010. Romain L., who wears a tattoo on his left pectoral proving his membership in the Supras, appeared detained at the occasion of this trial. He had been sentenced to two years in prison for violence against supporters of Malmö, a Swedish club. He was seen at the Parc a few times last season, in the Auteuil stand.
The Supras, at the origin of the creation of the Virage Auteuil, were dissolved in July 2010 following the death of Yann Lorence, as recalled by PSG this Friday morning in a press release. They had announced their presence in Nice, because of their friendship with the Wilde Horde, an ultra group from Cologne.
