Awful. Ajax fan suffers serious fall celebrating 2nd goal v Barcelona
Really awful news filtered through during Ajax’s 2-1 win over Barcelona on Tuesday evening in the Champions League.
It was a great result for the Dutch side, who now have a chance of qualification to the knockouts if they can beat AC Milan away, but whatever happens to the supporter is bound to dominate the aftermath of the encounter.
The Ajax fan was in the fanatical F-Side of the Amsterdam Arena and fell around 10 metres celebrating when the Amsterdammers went 2-0 up.
Initial reports suggest the Ajax supporter has a serious head injury and was rushed immediately to hospital by ambulance.
Social media was rife with suggestion that the fan had died but this has been denied by Amsterdam police.
An announcement from Ajax is expected later on Tuesday evening/early Wednesday morning.
A picture of the incident is below.
