Tottenham have ‘grave concerns’ about UEFA’s Barcelona fine after fans were attacked

Barcelona fined by UEFA

Last Friday, UEFA announced that FC Barcelona had been fined for an incident in the Champions League match against Tottenham back in December.

Spurs needed to go to the Camp Nou and get something out of the game to stay in the competition.

Tottenham drew 1-1, while they are now preparing for the Champions League final against Liverpool.

Footage spilled out of the Camp Nou during the Barca-Spurs game of stewards attacking fans with batons.

Barcelona stewards, identifiable by their bright yellow jackets, were recorded hitting the away fans.

According to the uploader of the video, the attack happened ‘for no reason’.

So how much did UEFA fine Barcelona?

Just £17,500, as the Catalans were punished for ‘insufficient organisation’.

Tottenham have ‘grave concerns’

Tottenham have released their reaction to UEFA’s fine for Barcelona.

It seems fair to say that the Lilywhites are hugely disappointed with the limited reaction from UEFA.

£17,500. That’s simply a ridiculously small amount of money.

A Spurs spokesman told the Sun the following in response:

No visiting supporters should have to experience what our fans went through that night again.

We have grave concerns, however, that the punishment imposed will not act as enough of a deterrent to avoid a repeat.

The safety and well-being of our supporters is paramount to the club when travelling both domestically and overseas.
