French Senate reports blames Champions League organizers over the crowed disorder in the finals between Real Madrid and Liverpool

French senate has slammed Champions League organizers security measures that led to the crowed disorder in the finals between Real Madrid and Liverpool.

The Spanish, Real Madrid defeated Liverpool 1-0 in the Champions League final but was delayed due to crowed disorder.

It was reported that the riot police in Paris sprayed tear gas on fans which include women and children in that scene.

Liverpool Mayor Steve Rotheram, also said they were robbed by criminals from the local Paris Seine St Denis suburb.

French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin stated that one of the major issues was large numbers of Liverpool fans turning up for the event without a valid tickets, but the Senate report also highlighted other problems.

“Ticketing cannot be considered as the sole or main reason for the incidents,” said Senator Laurent Lafon.

“There was a lack of organisation between the different parties concerned,” added Lafon, pointing to insufficient co-ordination between police, security at the stadium and transport officials dealing with a public transport strike on the day.

Darmanin and French Sports Minister Amelie Oudea-Castera have apologised to fans that were caught up in the issue, but insisted many Liverpool supporters arrived with fake tickets – a statement denied by Liverpool fans.

The spokesman for British Prime Minister Boris Johnson stated in May that Johnson was not pleased by how Liverpool fans had been treated in Paris, while Darmanin had said Liverpool posed public order problems.
