Hicks returns fire on UEFA

Liverpool co-owner Tom Hicks has blasted UEFA´s claims that the club´s fans are the worst-behaved in Europe, with the American claiming their spokesman William Gaillard "doesn´t know what he´s talking about".

Much of the criticism surrounds the conduct of Liverpool fans in Athens before the Champions League final last month, where fans without tickets or with fakes were able to gain access to the stadium at the expense of genuine ticket-holders and Greek police had to use tear gas in a bid to quell the chaos.

But Hicks lays the blame for the problems at UEFA´s door, and asked to respond to Gaillard´s damning comments about Liverpool fans, he told Sky Sports News: "The guy from UEFA who said that doesn´t know what he´s talking about. UEFA did not handle this right at all."
