Liverpool and Sevilla fined over Europa League trouble


London (AFP) – Liverpool and Sevilla were fined by UEFA on Monday following crowd trouble before and during the Europa League final against Sevilla in Basel in May.

Sevilla, who won the match 3-1 for a third successive Europa League title, were fined 17,000 euros (£14,242) while Liverpool were fined 16,000 euros.

The sanctions relate specifically to crowd disturbances, the setting off of fireworks, and an illicit banner.

A small numbers of supporters clashed behind one of the goals shortly before kick-off, with fans blaming poor segregation for the problems.

There was also criticism of UEFA’s choice of the St Jakob-Park stadium, which with its capacity of just 35,000 was the smallest chosen to host a major European final.
