Liverpool fined by UEFA….


UEFA has announced a fine of €16,000 for Liverpool relating to crowd disturbances and the setting off of fireworks during the Europa League final against Sevilla. UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body announced the sanction which related specifically to crowd disturbances, the setting off of fireworks, and an illicit banner. Sevilla, who won the match 3-1, were fined €17,000 for their part in the disturbances, which involved crowd disturbances and the throwing of objects. A small numbers of supporters clashed behind one of the goals shortly before kick-off, with many fans blaming poor segregation for the problems. There was also criticism of UEFA’s choice of the St Jakob-Park stadium, which with its capacity of just 35,000 was the smallest chosen to host a major European final.
