Sports minister Richard Caborn wants an "urgent explanation" for the chaotic scenes outside the Olympic Stadium in Athens ahead of Wednesday´s Champions League final.

UEFA have blamed ticketless Liverpool fans or those with forgeries gaining access to the stadium and forcing Greek police to declare the ground full.

Caborn will raise the issue with UEFA president Michel Platini when they meet on June 5 in Brussels and said: "I have a lot of sympathy with the Liverpool fans who paid their hard-earned money for genuine tickets but couldn´t get into the ground."
