• ‘The authorities have brought no evidence of wrongdoing’
Paris Saint-Germain have criticised the Metropolitan Police and Chelsea after several of their supporters were turned away from Thursday night’s Champions League tie at Kingsmeadow.
A 2-0 victory for Emma Hayes’s side was marred by events beforehand when a group of PSG’s “ultra” supporters were turned away from the ground before kick-off, with police later confirming reports that they had confiscated knives and knuckledusters when they searched the fans’ coach. One man was also arrested for possession of a Class A substance but rather than condemn their supporters, a statement from PSG on Friday appeared to blame the police and Chelsea for not allowing them to watch the game.
