Lazio director Igli Tare claims many of the 120 fans arrested in Warsaw are being held “for no reason.”
There were issues last night when a group of Lazio supporters were involved in a scuffle with Legia Warsaw fans and, on checking the hotel rooms of various fans, some were arrested for possessing knives.
Just before tonight’s Europa League game, further crowd trouble erupted outside the stadium with eye witnesses stating a couple of Lazio ultras threw objects at riot police, sparking a massive clampdown on the crowd.
“We know around 70 of our fans asked for a police escort from a cafe down to the stadium, but the police held them for no reason,” director of sport Tare told Sky Sport Italia.
It is reported 120 Lazio fans are currently under arrest in Warsaw.
