1 deal close & Real add to UEFA pressure – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are not alone in carrying the fight to UEFA and beyond over the outrageous lies being told in France, as Real Madrid join the calls for answers.


Real Madrid demand answers from UEFA

French football, police and politicians have some serious explaining to do, not least of all those who continue to propagate the lies of unruly supporters and the problems around the Champions League final.

Liverpool have already asked UEFA for an investigation, not just a report, and chief exec Billy Hogan has reiterated that stance after being “disturbed” by thousands of fan accounts of the dismal organisation which could have had far worse consequences in Paris.

Now Real Madrid have also pushed the case from their end, reporting their fans were also “victims” of events and demanding answers to a series of points including explanations of who exactly was responsible for leaving fans “helpless”.

This is not going to be allowed to go away. The truth will continue to be told.

UPDATE: UEFA have issued a “sincere apology” to fans

The more high-profile and club-neutral individuals who keep pushing the truth, the better.

Tonight there’s more Nations League action – why not go for Belgium vs Netherlands?! Sounds better than Belarus vs Slovakia to be honest.
