'Serious Incident' Declared At Marseille's Training Ground As Fans Break In And Set Off Fireworks

A group of furious Marseille fans successfully broke into the club's training ground after spraying the entrance with smoke and fireworks in a 'serious incident' on Saturday.

Supporters were equipped with flares as they marched to the Robert Louis-Dreyfus training complex in Marseille.

They set off fireworks and lit up a tree in wild scenes, angry at the team's current form and demanding the resignation of club president Jacques Henri Eyraud.

Further reports claim some fans broke into Marseille's training ground while adding it's unclear whether the players and coaches are inside or not.

Marseille currently occupy eighth place in Ligue 1 with 32 points on the board, 14 points adrift of league leaders Lyon.

Speaking earlier in the week, Andre Villas-Boas cut a dejected figure. He said: "It looks like the end. I think it'll all be over in June.

"I'm demanding nothing because looking at where we are it wouldn't be right. And I think everyone agrees with that."

The former Chelsea and Tottenham manager added: "I can't see an extension materialising, we're 13 points off the top.

"The place needs a clear-out including myself, unless I get 10 straight wins maybe not.

"But I'm responsible for the results and right now they're awful."

Villas-Boas' side host Rennes tonight.
