Legia Warsaw are set to respond after the violent incidents involving visiting hooligans outside the Santiago Bernabeu stadium as the Polish Champions faced Real Madrid.

Club spokesman, Seweryn Dmowski, announced on Twitter that a decision has been taken by the Polish club in a "unilateral manner and without pressure from UEFA and will see an end to away travel for the club's supporters in it's current form" .

He has called a press conference at Warsaw's Chopin airport later this evening where the finer details will be explained. Dmowski was apparently deeply offended by the images involving supporters linked with the club as they fought Spanish riot police outside the ground.
