UEFA promise fans protection

Published Add your comment

UEFA have promised that special measures will be taken to protect Manchester United fans in Rome in the Champions League this season.

Eleven supporters were hospitalised after the quarter-final against Roma in the Stadio Olimpico last season, many after a baton charge by riot police inside the ground.

William Gaillard, UEFA communications director and special advisor to president Michel Platini, said: "We will take special care of Manchester United fans because we know they had trouble. We will tighten up security to make sure they don´t get a repeat of the incident."
