Liverpool to investigate fan reports of heavy-handed policing
Valencia - Juventus live: Champions League 2018/19
The last minute equaliser for Seviila FC isn't the only bad memory for many of the club's supporters present at the Champions League tie at the Sánchez Pizjuán stadium last night. At the end of the match many fans and well established fan-group platforms such as The Spirit of Shankly and The Anfield Wrap`took to social media to complain about heavy-handing police tactics employed by security forces at the stadium.
Numerous fans recount how the police moved them away from the entrance point queue for no particular reason with others saying the witnessed LFC fans being beaten by members of the riot police. Supporters also added that they were herded into a sector with little or no respect for the seat and row numbers issued on their match-day tickets.
As a result of numerous complaints, the club issued an official communique stating "Following detailed and troubling accounts given by Liverpool supporters attending the match against Sevilla last night, the club is seeking to establish the facts regarding their treatment at the hands of the host stewards and local police force. The safety and security of our supporters is our paramount concern and we intend to gather all the relevant information before responding further."
