Shocking footages have emerged showing guards at the Nou Camp hitting Chelsea fans with batons after the loss to Barcelona.
“This happened as we were leaving the stadium,” a Chelsea fan wrote on Twitter.
“Security pushed passed us aggressively to attack fans, a young supporter was left in tears.
“Extremely aggressive and totally unprovoked.”
Another Chelsea fan said: “I was just down the walkway.
“It happened after Chelsea supporters started chanting ‘Barcelona, you’ll always be Spain’. Shocking from the stewards.”
In the wake of the incident, Chelsea have released a statement asking supporters for their version of events.
The statement: “Chelsea Football Club is aware of incidents that took place at the stadium in Barcelona last night which affected a number of our supporters, both before and after the match.
“We are emailing fans who purchased tickets directly from the club asking for witness accounts of the events.
“We are keen to receive any first-hand accounts from those present, including photos and video, or any other useful details. Please send information to [email protected]
“We are seeking details of supporters’ experiences on arrival at the entrance gates at Camp Nou stadium, the passage through the entry system to the seats and then after the game, any information on incidents when exiting the stadium.
