Liverpool Fans Condemn UEFA’s ‘sincere apology’

In its ‘sincere apologies’ for the unrest outside the Stade de France, UEFA has been chastised by Liverpool fans for failing to recognize that it was wrong to blame supporters for the turmoil that transpired before the Champions League final.

A slew of Liverpool fans lambasted the European governing body, which belatedly apologized ‘to all spectators who had to suffer or witness terrifying and disturbing occurrences’ before the match in Paris, when fans, including women and children, were tear-gassed and pepper-sprayed.

UEFA did not apologize for blaming the incidents that marred the game on the ‘late arrival’ of fans, hundreds of whom had gathered at the stadium hours before kick-off – a fact that was not lost on Liverpool supporters.

This message was exhibited both inside the stadium and on social media, and it is still up on UEFA’s social media accounts about a week later.

Sir Kenny Dalglish commented on Twitter, “This is a start, but there is still a long way to go.” ‘This apology does not include the erroneous statement regarding the late kickoff, the events at the fan park, or the events that followed.’

‘Your apology means nothing as long as your initial falsehoods and allegations remain on your website and social media – they must be removed immediately!’ said the Liverpool fans’ union Spirit of Shankly.

Kelly Cates, Dalglish’s daughter, posted a Tweet containing an item on UEFA’s apologies, writing: ‘Not for the “late comers” lies?’
The founder of The Anfield Wrap podcast, Gareth Roberts, was one of the other supporters to criticize UEFA.

‘How about an honest apology from UEFA for the falsehoods about supporters that were aired throughout the world during and after the game?’ Roberts penned the piece.

‘How about the aftermath of the game, and how individuals were treated?’

The charges leveled against Liverpool by the French government have incensed them, and it seemed unclear that the grovelling remarks from UEFA’s headquarters in Nyon on Friday night would be enough to appease them.

However, UEFA – who have promised an independent investigation into what transpired before and after their showpiece match – did try to acknowledge that Liverpool fans were put in a number of dangerous circumstances.
