Marseille President Jacques-Henri Eyraud receives death threat, goes to police

L’Équipe report that Ligue 1 club Marseille President Jacques-Henri Eyraud has received a death threat on social media this Wednesday – he has since reported the incident to the authorities.

In what is being viewed as an indirect consequence of comments in a press conference today made by André Villas Boas about Eyraud’s decision to appoint Paul Aldridge as the club’s first ever “Head of Selling Players to England,” and not consult him first, Eyraud received a death threat this afternoon.

The threat was very specific and included Eyraud’s home address. The head of OM’s board quickly reported the incident to the police and was subsequently interviewed by the authorities.
