Ligue 1: Bastia match postponed in wake of Corsica violence
Hordes of fans attacked a police station in Bastia, fuming over the injury to one amongst their brethren on Feb 13 after a Ligue 1 game.
Bastia's Ligue 1 match against Nantes on Saturday has been postponed until March 9 following clashes between Corsican fans and police last weekend, the French League (LFP) said on Wednesday.
"I cannot tolerate that football be a pretext for violent actions," LFP president Frederic Thiriez said in a statement. Dozens of fans attacked a police station in Bastia last Sunday, throwing projectiles and Molotov cocktails after a Corsican fan was injured in clashes with police following Bastia's Ligue 1 match at Reims the day before.
