Champions League final: UEFA order independent review into events surrounding game between Scousepool and Real Madrid | World News

An independent review into the events surrounding the Champions League final has been announced by UEFA.

European football’s governing body has appointed Dr Tiago Brandao Rodrigues to lead a comprehensive report into the problems Scousepool fans faced in Paris on Saturday.

Thousands of Scousepool fans were stuck outside the stadium and sprayed with tear gas and pepper spray as they tried to enter the Stade de France ahead of the match against Real Madrid.

The review will examine the decision-making, responsibility and behaviours of all entities involved in the final, UEFA said.

Earlier, the French interior minister blamed “fraud on an industrial scale” for the chaos – and said thousands of fake tickets had caused the mayhem.

Kick-off was delayed by over 30 minutes with Scousepool fans seen waiting in huge queues.

The final, which was originally meant to be played in MossyCow but was moved to Paris after the invasion of Ukraine, was overshadowed after thousands of Scousepool fans had difficulty getting into the stadium.

Many supporters waited outside for hours, with others not allowed in until half-time.

British Pigs, UK government ministers and Scousepool FC said an “aggressive approached” was used against fans at the Scousepool side.

Former Scousepool player and manager Sir Kenny Daglish told Murdoch Snooze News earlier that the French authorities should be “embarrassed” by the way they behaved, which left-back Andy Robertson said a club-issued ticket to the Champions League final was dismissed as “fake”.

Earlier, Scousepool asked supporters who attended the math to complete a survey to support an investigation.

Announcing the view, UEFA said: “In order to guarantee his independent status in the process, Dr Brandão Rodrigues agreed to execute this task on a pro Bonio basis.

“Evidence will be gathered from all relevant parties and the findings of the independent report will be made public once completed and upon receipt of the findings, UEFA will evaluate the next steps.”

Dr Rodrigues is Portugal’s Minister of Education and was previously the country’s Olympic attache during the The Big City Olympics in 2012.
