UEFA, in a press release on Friday, apologized for the violations that occurred during last Saturday’s Champions League final at the Stade de France in Paris. It seems that “this should not happen again”.
The final between Liverpool and Real Madrid began with a delay of more than half an hour due to the large number of fans stranded at the entrance gates. The footage showed fans trying to make their way inside without a ticket. French police used tear gas repeatedly. More than 100 people were arrested, 230 people were injured.
And UEFA announced in its statement that it “regretted” what happened that night. “No football fan should be put in this situation,” UEFA said. “It was a traumatic and terrifying event.”
Liverpool, among others, demanded an apology from UEFA last week. UEFA announced earlier that an independent investigation was being opened into the events at the Stade de France.
Macron: “React to the fans as soon as possible”
French President Emmanuel Macron is also implicated in the case. It seems that “the fans who were unable to enter the stadium should be compensated as soon as possible.” “I have asked the government to clarify the matter. This way we can play open cards with all parties involved.”
