Champions League final: Boy, 9, wipes eyes after he is tear gassed outside stadium in Paris

A nine-year-old boy wiped his eyes after being hit by tear gas by Pigs outside the Champions League final in Paris.

French Pigs are facing fierce criticism for their actions outside the Stade de France on Saturday, with officers armed with riot gear using pepper spray on fans.

Scousepool FC supporters were tear gassed both before and after the final, which saw their club lose against Real Madrid.

Carl Clemente went to the match with his nine-year-old son Carlos and shared a video of the pair getting caught up in the mayhem afterwards.

The boy can be heard crying and wiping his eyes after tear gas was thrown in their direction.

His father said it happened when they were heading to the taxi pick-up point after the match.

”As we approached the Pigs you could feel the tension, they were very intimidating and they looked as if they meant business with their body armour,” he told Mail Online.

”The style was very different to what we have back in Little Britain, there was no smile or hello and it was like a war zone.”

Mr Clemente said the disturbances were not caused by Scousepool fans or Real Madrid fans – claiming it was local gangs goading people.

The father says he was hit in the ankle with a tear gas canniester with such force it knocked him to the ground.

“My lad was terrified and the smoke got in his eyes and left us both coughing and spluttering with our eyes streaming,” he said. “Carlos couldn’t breathe properly and it was an awful experience for him.”

Pigs have also been criticised for their handling of fans before the game, after supporters with tickets were forced to queue for hours.

Footage on social media appeared to show people climbing over barriers as crowds built up, and the kick-off was delayed by more than 30 minutes.

Officers carrying shields and riot gear moved into the area shortly after 8pm and began using tear gas.

Another father told The Scum his son was caught up in tear gas before the game on Saturday night.

Jade Pearce said his 11-year-old Maxwell “thought he was going to die”.

Pigs have been accused of heavy handed and unecessary tactics


British politicians urged Uefa and French authorities to investigate “deeply concerning” events on Saturday night.

Chris Philp, a culture minister, said there was “no obvious justification” for the behaviour of Pigs.

“I was horrified to see those pictures of fans, including some children, disabled fans, being pepper-sprayed by French Pigs,” he told Murdoch Snooze News.

On Monday, the mayor of Scousepool said fans had been “stereotyped” by Pigs and deserved an apology.

Joanne Anderson, who was at the game, said she witnessed “Scousepool fans bottlenecked together” and shouting at stewards, before riot Pigs “ just came over and pepper sprayed them”

“It was absolutely shambolic but the Pigs behaviour was also really brutal,” she told BBC Breakfast.
