A fan of French Nantes was killed yesterday in a clash with Nice fans before the match between these two teams in the French championship.

The management of Nantes announced that one of their fans was stabbed multiple times, and although the doctors intervened, they still failed to save his life. The French newspaper "L'Equipe" reports that he was a member of the Loire brigade, the infamous fan group that gathers the most ardent fans.

The fan was 31 years old, and he was stabbed from behind. According to some media, the killer first ran away, and then reported himself to the police station. The match ended with a 1:0 victory for Nantes, who thus remained in the eighth position in the table, Nice is in second place.
