The head of Uefa’s safety and security department and the senior safety official at the Champions League final were not actively involved in the Stade de France control centre as the night descended into chaos, it has been claimed.
Lower-ranking Uefa safety officers on duty at the Paris final between Liverpool and Real Madrid on 28 May are said to have worked frantically hard to try to remedy the dangerous developments and huge static queues outside the stadium. However, there have been reports from the operation that Zeljko Pavlica, Uefa’s head of safety and security, and the official delegated for senior Uefa responsibility at the match, said to have been Zoran Cvrk, were not visibly involved in the control centre.
