The Manchester United fan group MUST declare that their fans have been mistreated in Bruges

The Manchester United fan group MUST declare that their fans have been mistreated in Bruges

Manchester United fan group “MUST” wrote an open letter to the mayor of Bruges to complain about the treatment of fans during their Europa League game against Club Brugge.

Manchester United drew 1-1 with Club Bruges last week in the first leg of the Europa League 32 group stage.

The Manchester United Supporters Trust stated that “fans had a real fear of their safety” during the trip to Belgium.

The letter read: “Many of us who have traveled the world since MUFC are of the opinion that this was the worst European away game experience they had had for many years.

“We came home with the impression of Bruges that all those responsible for our security should be ashamed.

“We have numerous reports that the police instructed taxi drivers to stay away from the ground and not to pick up Manchester United fans. It was a long hike in horrendous weather conditions from the city to the stadium.”

The letter to Mayor Dirk De fauw also raised problems with the use by the local police of water cannons and barbed wire barriers, as well as stating that Manchester United fans could not leave the stadium.

The statement read: “We would be embarrassed if visitors to Manchester were treated as described above – aren’t you ashamed of the way visitors to your city have been treated?

“Poor treatment is an issue, but security concerns go far beyond that and we will send a report to UEFA that will outline the issues that our supporters have sent us.”

In the letter MUST also be stated:

  • fans had been “deliberately sent in the wrong direction for long detours”
  • there was “almost universal hostility from the police when they were contacted for assistance / guidance”
  • the exit gates in the stadium were “blocked leading to the accumulation of crowds and the risk of developing a crush”

Sky Sports News he contacted the mayor’s office for comment.
