Inter Milan calls for an investigation after the blocking of its supporters
Inter could savor their qualification for the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Tuesday evening, after their draw against Porto (0-0). But some Nerazzuri supporters will keep a bitter taste of this trip to Portugal. They were a thousand to be blocked in front of the Estadio do Dragao, despite having valid tickets, on the grounds that the latter had been purchased for the stands intended for local supporters and not for visitors.
“Inter asks UEFA to intervene so that light is shed on what happened and that situations like this, contrary to the key principles of sportsmanship, equality and of inclusion, never happen again”the club said in a statement.
Spectators were stuck in a cramped tunnel until the gates closed at the end of the first half, unable to watch the game.
