Clashes between ultras Milan and PSG: three injured
A 34-year-old PSG fan , who will play AC Milan at San Siro this evening, was seriously injured in a brawl between French supporters and around fifty Rossoneri ultras late yesterday evening in the Navigli area, one of the most famous in the area. The Milan supporters then fled. Some policemen were also injured in the attempt to disperse the French . As reported by ANSA, the PSG fan was apparently hit with two stab wounds and was transported in serious condition to the Milan Polyclinic hospital. The fight broke out in the presence of numerous people who fled from the tables of the premises.
He will have to “immediately leave” Milan, where he will “no longer be able to return”, otherwise he risks ending up in prison. With these words, in the courtroom, the judge validated the flagrant arrest and ordered the residence ban in the Lombardy capital for the PSG ultra involved in last night’s clashes with the AC Milan ultras and accused of resistance to a public official and injuries. According to police investigations, the 34-year-old hit one of the officers who intervened to break up the scuffles in the face with a bar (the policeman received a 5-day prognosis). The young man, questioned in court, said that “it was the AC Milan fans who attacked us while we were sitting in a bar” in the Navigli area. And he then tried to claim that he had not hit the officer, but that he had “thrown the bar to the ground”. The judge did not believe the man’s version, highlighting the “serious indications of guilt” against him and the “precautionary needs for the protection of the community”, such as the danger that he would commit other crimes of the same type.
The security measures envisaged for PSG fans
In view of this evening’s match at San Siro, this is the program for PSG fans: a special route to reach the Milan Cathedral after collecting the tickets. Then 3 dedicated subway trips to reach Piazzale Lotto, a concentration point for French fans. At 6 pm the procession will leave from there and reach the stadium.
Milan’s statement: “We condemn all forms of violence: for us football is passion, not hatred. Sport is made to unite, not divide”: this is the club’s official message after last night’s events.
