Champions League final marred by delays and use of tear gas on fans

The soccer Champions League final in Paris was marred as Liverpool fans were sprayed with tear gas as they tried to enter the stadium

They were delaying the start of the match by 35 minutes. Real Madrid beat Liverpool 1-0 to win their record 14th title

Liverpool player Andy Robertson termed the events a "shambles," adding the chaos had harmed the players' friends and family

It was a nightmare for our fans and all of the affected families

It wasn't a pleasant experience, and it wasn't an excellent conclusion

The Champions League should have been a joyous occasion, but it was not

The delay, according to UEFA, was caused by spectators attempting to enter the stadium with bogus tickets

Thousands of supporters who had purchased bogus tickets that did not operate in the turnstiles clogged the turnstiles at the Liverpool end in the days leading up to the game

As a result, the game was delayed by 35 minutes to allow as many spectators with valid tickets as possible to enter

As crowds grew outside the stadium after kickoff, authorities used tear gas to disperse them and drove them away from the stadium
