The Citizen (KZN) - - Sport - Lon­don

– Wolver­hamp­ton Wan­der­ers said they have lodged a com­plaint with Uefa over the way trav­el­ling fans were treated dur­ing their Europa League match against Por­tuguese club Braga last month.

The English club said they had re­ceived a num­ber of com­plaints from fans who were left “dis­tressed and in some cases in­jured” as they tried to en­ter the Es­ta­dio Mu­nic­i­pal de Braga.

“Wolves takes the safety of its sup­port­ers ex­tremely se­ri­ously, and these type of in­ci­dents are not what is ex­pected when at­tend­ing events or­gan­ised by Uefa or its mem­ber clubs,” the club said in a state­ment.

“We sin­cerely thank all sup­port­ers who have taken the time to share their ex­pe­ri­ence with us to help form our re­port and now await a re­sponse from UEFA.”

Wolves and Braga played out a thrilling 3-3 draw as both teams qual­i­fied for the knock­out stage from Group K. –
