Gill: Homework Must Be Done

Gill: Homework Must Be Done

The United chief executive believes the clubs and the police learned enough from last year's violent scenes ahead and after the games against Roma.

Before last season's quarterfinals, several United fans had been stabbed in Rome outside the stadium whereas inside the police were terrifying and there were clashes between them and the fans.

Before the return leg the fans had some clashes outside Old Trafford but fortunately, inside the stadium everything was all right - and the match turned out to be pretty good after all.

AS Roma has been drawn alongside United once again, in the Champions League group stages but David Gill, United's chief executive insist the clubs have nothing to fear.

'What we need to do is do our homework and work very closely with Roma,' he said.

'I'm sure the lessons have been learned by Roma and the authorities from last year.

'We believe our fans acted very properly and were found to be broadly blameless.

'I think we need to all to work together to ensure the game is remembered for what happens on the field as opposed to off it.

'We will discuss it with Roma and UEFA to make sure it is remembered for what happens on the field and make sure everyone travels in safety.'


Last season, Roma got away without serious punishment despite the words of William Gaillard, adviser of president Michel Platini who publicly admitted they are not happy with the way security is attempted to be uphold in Italian stadia.

Supporters' group IMUSA have announced they would work closely with UEFA, FIFA, the club and the FA to avoid the troubles of last season.
