Arsenal launches investigation into fan delay
Arsenal has opened an investigation to find out why hundreds of
their supporters were delayed in getting to the Sao Paulo Stadium
ahead of their team’s 2-0 loss to Napoli in the Champions
Arsenal, which finished second in Group F and progressed to the
knockout stage despite the loss, says the club will ”work out
precisely what happened” after fans complained of disorganization
and rough treatment from police.
Arsenal had warned their fans to take extra care following
previous problems with the Italian side’s fans. Many supporters
caught in traffic or delayed by congestion at the stadium entrance
missed the kick-off.
The Premier League club says ”we are very disappointed for our
fans that they had a difficult evening but the circumstances were
beyond our control.”
