CSKA Moscow Official statement about the shameful incident!

Through their official website CSKA released a statement to express their disappointment in reference to the incidents at the Olimpico stadium before and during the match of the Champions League that Roma won 5-1.

CSKA management stated:

“PFC CSKA management, players and coaches are deeply disappointed with the shameful incident that took place on the supporters’ stand during the UEFA Champions League game AS Roma v PFC CSKA.

We are aware of the fact that before the game several fans of PFC CSKA were attacked outside the territory of the stadium and some of them were stabbed (the club is currently cooperating with the Rome police to investigate the crime and find the guilty).We understand that the fans were disappointed with the course of the game. Also we can presume that the close proximity with the tribune of AS Roma fans could somehow provoke unreasonable actions of the visiting team supporters.

But, despite of all the above, we consider the actions performed by a part of the fans absolutely unacceptable. It is well-known that mere use of pyrotechnics is punishable by serious sanctions. But throwing fireworks into AS Roma fans sector and fighting with stewards go beyond comprehension…”
