Last night was disgusting. My son attacked my wife mugged @UEFAcom very accountable as well as ground stewards and French police. Hope everyone is getting out of this shitshow safely. #LFC #LFCFamily

We’d like to express our deepest sympathies to McAteer and his loved ones and we hope that all fans involved have safely emerged from the event in question.
It’s difficult to tell the extent to which fan treatment impacted performance on the pitch, though we’ve no doubt that it will have only compounded the negative feelings within the squad after the conclusion of the tie.
In what should have been a show of unity after the final was moved from St. Petersburg to the French capital was sadly utterly marred by French officials on the day.
