Roma incident

Following the shocking and unprovoked attack on a defenceless Liverpool supporter outside Anfield before the Champions League semi-final against Roma last night, the thoughts of everyone associated with Spirit of Shankly are with the victim and his family and friends.

SOS have since been contacted by several media outlets, but we will not be making any comment at this time. There is an ongoing police investigation and we await further updates. We urge anyone with information to contact Merseyside Police.

This incident has also raised questions about the policing and safety of Liverpool fans travelling to Rome next week for the second leg. We will continue our conversations with LFC, Merseyside Police and others to ensure supporter concerns are heard.

We will keep you updated of any progress.
