Real’s statement revealed “many of the, fans were violently assaulted, harassed, and robbed” and that “some of them even had to spend the night, in hospital”.
Their complaints echo those, of Liverpool, with Billy Hogan, the Premier, League club’s chief executive, saying this week he has been “horrified” by accounts, from fans after receiving more, than 5,000 pieces of feedback about issues, surrounding last week’s game.
The match – the biggest in club, football – was delayed by nearly 40 minutes, as fans struggled to enter the Stade de France. Some supporters with, legitimate tickets were denied entry, into the ground, while others were tear-gassed by police.
UEFA initially blamed the delayed, kick-off on Liverpool fans arriving late to, the stadium, while Amelie Oudea-Castera, the French, sports minister, accused Liverpool fans let “out, in the wild” of causing the issues.
Hogan hit out at the “surprising” comments, from Oudea-Castera, who has since, commissioned a report on the troubles that marred the showpiece, event. Michael Cadot, the inter-ministerial, delegate for large sports events, has been asked to produce the, report within 10 days.
