PSG fans harass players, vandalize cars after Barcelona defeat


A group of angry Paris Saint-Germain fans, waited for the players and heckled them at the Bourget Airport, following their arrival from a Champions League last-16 tie in Barcelona.


Unai Emery’s men threw away a 4-0 lead from the first leg, losing 6-1 at the Camp Nou, as the La Liga side completed a historic comeback.

The PSG players arrived back in Paris at 5 a.m CET to meet irate supporters on Thursday morning.

“These individuals verbally insulted the players before vandalising their cars,” an official PSG communiqué read.

“Several vehicles were damaged.

“In this extremely hostile and aggressive climate, all vehicles were escorted to ensure the safe passage of the players, their families and club staff members. One individual was struck by a car trying to escape the crowd that was physically threatening the players and their families.”

The Ligue 1 giants also confirmed that “a police investigation is underway to establish exactly what happened” and stressed their “readiness” to help figure out exactly what happened.
