Downing Street said it was “extremely disappointed” with the treatment inflicted on England’s Liverpool fans in the Champions League final. Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has written to the sports minister demanding an apology for his supporters. An investigation is being conducted by the club to determine the course of events.

The Stade de France affair causes diplomatic tensions. On Monday, Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s office said it was “extremely disappointed” with the treatment of British supporters in France. The anger does not subside. On the side of the Liverpool club, the reactions were also felt. Liverpool chairman Tom Werner has written to the sports minister demanding an apology for his supporters.

Liverpool investigate

Indeed, the club is furious following the statements of the two French ministers and believes that they are advancing false information. The figure of 40,000 supporters without tickets, declared by the French authorities, challenges the English club. “How can we give such a figure when no serious and transparent investigation has yet taken place?” asks the director of Liverpool.

Several experienced British journalists present at the Stade de France this Saturday evening also strongly contest this figure. Downing Street does not seem to adhere to this version either. So the club is now starting to gather evidence. Fans who attended the Champions League final in Paris have all been invited to send in their testimonials.
