Roma ‘condemns abhorrent’ Liverpool fan attack


Roma have released a statement condemning the attack outside Anfield last night that has left a 53-year-old man in a critical condition.

The victim, thought to be a Liverpool fan from Ireland, has a head injury and is being treated in hospital.

“AS Roma condemns in the strongest possible terms the abhorrent behavior of a small minority of traveling fans who brought shame on the club and the vast majority of Roma’s well-behaved supporters at Anfield after getting involved in clashes with Liverpool supporters before last night’s fixture,” said the club.

“There is no place for this type of vile behavior in football and the club is now cooperating with Liverpool Football Club, UEFA and the authorities.”The club’s thoughts and prayers are with the 53-year-old Liverpool fan in hospital and his family at this time.”
