SEDAN, France, March 5, 2007 (AFP) - French club Sedan have made a protest against an unknown person or persons in relation to their league match against Paris St Germain at the weekend.

Fans from Dutch team FC Utrecht, who have a special relationship with Sedan, attacked PSG fans after breaking through a barrier.

Several Dutch fans were arrested by police during the game and now Sedan have opted to make a show of lodging a complaint.

The complaint is aimed at the Utrecht fans but also some Parisians who threw missiles onto the pitch and a PSG fan in particular who was allegedly inciting violence from within the stands.

PSG for their part have also indicated their intention to lodge a protest, although it is not clear against who.

Six people were hurt during the crowd troubles on Saturday and one of those, a PSG fan, was still in hospital on Monday.

Sedan's club co-ordinator Serge Marchetti also said he would ban Utrecht fans from Sedan's Louis Dugauguez stadium in future.

"Unfortunately the Utrecht fans will no longer be allowed in. If they come back they will be stopped at the border," he said.

Since 2005, Utrecht fans have joined their Sedan counterparts for some fo the French club's biggest games.

Sedan bosses have also decided to close one stand, home to their most notorious supporters, for their next home game against Bordeaux on March 17.
