PSG warns Croatian authorities of hooligan threat
Paris Saint-Germain has warned Croatian authorities that about
100 hooligans are rumored to be travelling to Wednesday’s Champions
League match against Dinamo Zagreb.
PSG has already said it will not provide club travel for
supporters because of security concerns. But the club issued
another statement on Sunday, saying ”a persistent rumor exists
that 100 individuals known to be dangerous will travel
independently to Zagreb for this match, which is classified as high
risk by UEFA.”
PSG said it ”has alerted the Croatian authorities to this
threat,” adding ”these people, overstepping the orders of the
club, are in no way representative of Paris Saint-Germain.”
Hooliganism was rife among a section of hardcore PSG supporters
from 1985 to 2010. Dinamo Zagreb has a notorious hooligan element
known as ”BBB” (Bad Blue Boys).
