Roma fined for Liverpool fracas

Roma have been fined €50,000 for crowd disturbances before their Champions League semi-final first leg against Liverpool.

UEFA has also banned Roma from selling tickets to fans for their next two European away games, with the second deferred under a probationary period of two years.

Liverpool fan Sean Cox suffered serious head injuries in an attack outside Anfield before his team’s 5-2 win on April 24 and remains hospitalised.

BBC Sport also understands charges against the Reds ‘will be dealt with at a later date’ after they asked UEFA to take ‘more time’ before reaching a verdict.
