Millwall midfielder Jimmy Abdou's reaction to Friday's Paris atrocities

Millwall Football Club extends our sympathies to all those who suffered in the atrocities that took place in Paris on Friday night.

As England play France in a friendly match at Wembley on Tuesday, the whole of football has the chance to unite in support of the French people and stand against those who would try to intimidate us through acts of terror.

The events of Friday were especially close to home for Lions midfielder Jimmy Abdou as he explains:

“My brother was in Paris on Friday. He went to Disneyland with friends. I was worrying because I couldn’t get hold of him but eventually he rang.

“We have to show character and not weakness. Playing the game on Tuesday shows that.  It will be more than a game, the world will be watching I’m sure.

“Everyone wants to stay strong, look forward and work together to stop this sort of thing occurring in the future.”
