Champions League final - Many are waiting for an explanation, two days after the fiasco of the Champions League final. After chaotic scenes around the Stade de France on Saturday May 28, France’s Ministry of Sport has met this morning at 11am with the organizers of the final between Liverpool and Real Madrid, the police and the local authorities in order to find out what exactly happened. Guest of RTL this Monday morning, the Minister of Sports reported that there were "30,000 to 40,000 people" without tickets or with fake tickets on Saturday. The final between Real Madrid and Liverpool started 36 minutes late on Saturday, due to disruptions near the Stade de France.

France’s Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, denounced on Twitter "thousands of British 'supporters', without tickets or with fake tickets", who "forced entries and, sometimes, assaulted the stewards". A version criticized by Liverpool police officers present in Saint-Denis (Seine-Saint-Denis), according to which "the vast majority" of English supporters "behaved in an exemplary manner".
