Metz to file complaint after new racist incidents

METZ, France, Feb 26 (Reuters) - Metz will file a complaint after new racist incidents involving some of their supporters, the Ligue 1 club said on Tuesday.

Club sources confirmed reports by witnesses that some Metz fans had shouted racist chants and performed Nazi salutes after a 2-0 defeat at Olympique Lyon on Saturday.

'We will file a complaint once we have completed our inquiry and identified the culprits', Metz director of security Jacky Ancel told reporters.

Valenciennes captain Abdeslam Ouaddou has filed a legal complaint after being racially abused by a fan during a Ligue 1 match at Metz on February 16.

Following that incident players, referees and coaches wore T-shirts reading 'racism, never again' before every Ligue 1 match last weekend.

After the match in Lyon, some Metz players threw those T-shirts at the Metz fans in the stands. Some T-shirts were thrown back on to the pitch after being torn and that is when the Nazi salutes and racist insults followed, witnesses said.

Last Friday, a racist banner was held by some Bastia fans during a Ligue 2 match.

The banner was targeted at visiting Libourne-St Seurin's Burkina Faso-born striker Boubacar Kebe, who had previously complained about racial slurs in a Ligue 2 match against Bastia last year.

League body LFP has launched disciplinary proceedings and said Bastia could be docked points.
