Report: Police clash with City fans

Claims of a clash between Spanish police and Manchester City fans have been reported

Claims of a clash between Spanish police and Manchester City fans prior to the club's Champions League match against Real Madrid have been reported.

Natalie Pike, a matchday presenter at the English club but in the Spanish capital as a fan, tweeted about a disturbance at a bar.

About an hour before kick-off she tweeted: "Just watched spanish police batter city fans. A big group of about 100 of us outside a bar opposite the stadium and they tore in battons up. No one doing any harm at all. Very scary stuff. So out of order."

She added: "Been going football 20 years never seen anything like it. On my life city fans doing nothing but singing and having fun.

"Women, kids, teenagers, all treated like scum. So out of order. Am so upset.

"The bar was so busy people were standing on the street outside. All innocent and friendly. No warning, no one asking us to move.

"The police just got there batons out and moved people along by smacking them."

City fans had travelled in large numbers for the eagerly-anticipated Group D opener.

The Spanish police are well known cowardly kuntz, who are brave when mob handed. Most Spaniards act tough until you stand up to them and then they run away.

Now does this report say City fans were doing anything wrong? NO

So for all the Utd fans commenting read the report and get the facts before you start throwing stones,

the report was written by a match day commentator who happens to be a City supporter in Spain as a fan.

The match was enthralling not the 6 - 1 result we had against you on your home ground but a match

that was played with respect and a ref who saw that the game was played fair, maybe some of the UK refs should take a leaf out of his book, its not about supporting either team its his job to be neutral something certain UK refs seriously lack.

unfortunately natalie , that is the way the latin countries respond to following your team. they treat it like a mini invasion and havent the cluedos to understand you are there only for a day or 2.  the northen hemisphere police are a bit more likeable and allow you to go on about your daily business without hinderance . but watch out  if your not. same goes for the israelie old bill when the euro champions played there. a very similiar report came out when the geordies played in scicily a few years ago. the spanish/portugues/ italian police are just thugs in uniform
