(ANSA-AFP) – ROME, MAY 31 – Liverpool president Tom Werner has apologized to the French minister of sport Amelie Oudea-Castera for the treatment reserved to the fans of the English club in the Champions League final last Saturday in Paris. In a letter sent to Minister Werner yesterday, he said he was “completely disbelieving” at his comments about the chaos. Oudea-Castera had initially blamed Liverpool for helping to cause chaos, telling a French radio station that the English club had failed to properly handle its fans who went to Paris.

The French government then added that the “massive” ticket fraud had contributed to the chaos that ruined the match against Real Madrid. The images have tarnished the reputation of the French capital, raising doubts about its ability to host major sporting events as it prepares for the 2024 Olympics and the 2023 Rugby World Cup. French government … can make a series of unsubstantiated statements on a matter of such importance before a proper, formal and independent investigative process has even taken place – wrote Werner in his letter released by the local Liverpool Echo newspaper – Yours The comments were irresponsible, unprofessional and utterly disrespectful to the thousands of physically and emotionally damaged fans. Uefa allow the conduct of an independent and transparent investigation “. (ANSA-AFP).
