Madrid team bus smashed by Liverpool fans


A window was smashed on a Real Madrid team bus after objects were thrown at it on the way to the Champions League quarter-final against Liverpool on Wednesday night.

The bus was attacked as it approached Anfield, en route from the Hotel, with Liverpool fans lining the streets outside the stadium.

Liverpool have since condemned the unacceptable and shameful behaviour.

“We condemn unequivocally the actions that led to Real Madrid’s team bus being damaged during its arrival to Anfield this evening. It is totally unacceptable and shameful behaviour of a few individuals.

“We sincerely apologise to our visitors for any distress caused. We will work together with Merseyside Police to establish the facts and identify those responsible,” read the statement.

It appeared that objects were thrown, breaking a window halfway down the vehicle on the driver’s side. Groups of Liverpool fans did congregate before the game, with their club trailing 3-1 from the first leg in Madrid, and with some flares being set off.

The driver was later seen breaking away the remaining pieces of glass as the bus was parked outside the Main Stand before it was cleaned up.
