Key Facts

  • France's sports minister said on Monday that Liverpool fans without valid tickets were responsible for the initial crowd problems at the Champions League final, with the problem then exacerbated by local youths trying to force their way into the game.
  • "When there are that many people by the entrance to the stadium, there will be people trying to force their way in through the doors of the Stade de France, and a certain number of youths from the nearby area who were present tried to get in by mixing in with the crowd."
  • Darmanin added that while French authorities had taken steps to prepare for the risk of issues, they were caught off-guard by local youths who also turned up to cause trouble at the match.
  • Oudea-Castera said that there were no problems with Madrid supporters at Saturday's match and that the Spanish side had managed to control their travelling fans better than Liverpool.
