PARIS: France coach Didier Deschamps has condemned the hooligan violence in Marseille. During three days of violence in the southern French seaport, locals fought with English fans and then fighting erupted between Russian and English supporters, including Russian fans attacking their English counterparts in the stadium. “It’s sad to see this,” Deschamps said on television channel TF1. “It sends chills down your spine. These people are not fans,” Deschamps added. “They use football to do acts of barbarism, violence.”
