Kevin Campbell has given his support to the Liverpool fans suing Uefa over their handling of the Champions League final.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Arsenal and Everton striker said the scenes in Paris were “unsavoury” and should not be seen in football.
As reported by the BBC (23 September), more than 1,700 Liverpool fans are to sue Uefa for their mishandling of last season’s Champions League final in Paris.
The supporters claim they were injured or left with psychological trauma from the scenes outside the Stade de France.

“Those fans have paid their money. They should be going to Paris well looked after in a nice environment. They should be able to to and watch the game in a safe environment.
Our CEO Billy Hogan has tonight provided a further update on the club’s response to the issues experienced by fans at the Champions League final in Paris.
“There was a bit of heavy handedness from the police. It left an unsavoury taste. I spoke to a few Liverpool fans who went and the experience has put them off.
“That is not what football is about, especially the Champions League final. Fair play to the Liverpool fans. I hope it is something that gets resolved quickly because these things should not be happening in football.”
