The management of Liverpool Football Club has thanked the club’s fans who traveled to Italy on Wednesday for the Champions League semi-final second leg at the Stadio Olimpico for their exemplary conduct.
The club also thanked the AS Roma, UEFA, Merseyside police, Italian police and security services in Rome who were on ground to ensure all fans enjoyed a safe visit.
The second leg at the Stadio Olimpico had drawn a lot of security concern following the attack by some Roma supporters on Liverpool fans outside Anfield in the first leg which has left one Liverpool fan, Sean Cox, in a coma, but there were no reports of attacks recorded in Wednesday night’s encounter.
A statement from the club on Thursday said, over 5,000 fans made the journey to the Italian capital for yesterday’s semi-final second leg, behaving impeccably throughout, with no major incidents reported as the Reds qualified for the Champions League final after 11 years on a 7-6 aggregate.
Also Merseyside Chief Superintendent, Dave Charnock in a statement said: “I would like to commend the Liverpool fans for their exceptional behavior during last night’s match in Rome. It was all very good natured and there were no major issues reported.
