UEFA´s director of communications William Gaillard has warned that Rome could be stripped of hosting the 2009 Champions League final if there are violent scenes at this week´s game between Roma and Manchester United.

The two sides meet on Tuesday in the first leg of their Champions League last-eight tie at the Stadio Olimpico, the venue for next year´s final.

"If there are more incidents like those that happened at the Roma-Real Madrid game we will have to reconsider the plan to have the 2009 final in Rome," Gaillard told Italian state TV on Monday.
