Montpellier sorry for player hitting reporter

Montpellier have apologised to a reporter who was punched by defender Cyril Jeunechamp at the weekend.

• Blog: Capital punishment for PSG

Jeunechamp was one of several Montpellier players who confronted journalist Jose Barroso, from French sports daily L'Equipe, following Saturday's 1-1 draw at Valenciennes. The players had apparently taken issue with an article he had written earlier in the week.

According to widespread reports in France, Jeunechamp lost his temper and punched Barosso in the face.

Reigning champions Montpellier, who earlier this season had manager Rene Girard disciplined by UEFA for making an obscene hand gesture at Schalke boss Huub Stevens in a Champions League match, said sorry and suggested Jeunechamp would be punished internally.

"Following the incident ... involving Cyril Jeunechamp, Montpellier are keen to apologise to the reporter from L'Equipe," the club said in a statement.

"The club firmly condemn this behaviour and will consider repercussions."

The Union of Sports Journalists in France also condemned Jeunechamp's actions, and did not rule out legal proceedings.

"This behaviour on the part of a professional football player is totally unacceptable and intolerable," the UJSF said in a statement.
