UEFA have been warned by Phil Hammond, of the Hillsborough Support Group, that a fan could die if they do not improve organisation at their matches.

European football´s governing body are at the centre of a row with Liverpool over the chaotic scenes outside last month´s Champions League final in Athens. Hammond, who lost a son in the 1989 Hillsborough disaster, was at the game in Greece and accepts there were problems caused by fans but stressed UEFA have to rectify their own problems.

He said: "The faults at the Athens final were 10% the fault of Liverpool fans, 90% the fault of UEFA. UEFA should get their house in order, people are going to die at their football matches, I can say that as someone who has lost someone and someone who went through what happened in Athens."
