French football hooligan who attacked Everton fans is jailed.

A French football hooligan who was among those who attacked Everton fans has been jailed.

Up to 100 louts descended on Blues supporters in Lille on Wednesday night beating them and attacking them with metal chairs.

A suspect - known only as Tomasz S - was arrested on Thursday after being recognised by police.

The 30-year-old appeared in court on Friday where he admitted punching an Everton fan but claimed he acted in self-defence.

However, a judge rejected that assertion and jailed him immediately for eight months.

Everton 'working with police' to understand Lille clashes

Everton FC say they will continue to work closely with French and Merseyside Police, in order to better understand two 'serious incidents' that occurred in Lille ahead of their Europa League fixture.

In a statement on their website, the club said:

"The incident in the city's main square quickly escalated into unwelcome and unpleasant scenes. Events then, equally quickly, returned back to normal with well-mannered and good-natured celebrations that were evident throughout the Club's stay in Lille. The Club will now work with all authorities to find out what happened and why."

Everton are now providing an online feedback form where fans will be able to submit their evidence.
