- February 14, 2013
One of the untold stories from the Real Madrid-Manchester United game on Wednesday night was the treatment United fans received from the Spanish police outside the ground.
Rumours spread that one fan was left badly beaten in the scuffles, and now video footage has come out showing the tense scenes outside the ground.
As United fans made their way into the ground, the bottleneck of enthusiastic supporters trying to get through the turnstiles was met by heavy handed riot police who were all too quick to get physical.
Men with children were caught up in the scenes as the Spanish police and Manchester United got in each others faces. The police only seemed to escalate the bad atmosphere as they manhandled supporters who were simply trying to get to their seats.
