“We are supporting our injured player and will be alongside him through this tough time,” the club said in a statement.

“We have reacted immediately to this incident and have suspended three players while we lead our investigation.”

The report states the incident occurred after tensions mounted behind the scenes following Bordeaux Under-17s defeat to Nantes two days earlier.


It is believed an altercation took place on the pitch that day which then led into a physical attack.

The victim is said to be ‘seriously injured’ on his thigh and on Thursday he was released from hospital with crutches.

The victim will not be able to play football for at least a fortnight, while the club have started conducting interviews to the three alleged attackers as part of an internal investigation.

The alleged offenders were placed in custody in Merignac police station on Wednesday to be questioned.
