On Saturday night, chaos broke out among football fans ahead of kick-off between Liverpool and Real Madrid’s Champions League final match at Stade de France. Pictures quickly emerged of the French police officers, who were seen spraying Liverpool fans with pepper spray. However, during Monday’s Good Morning Britain, Jimmy Tarbuck blasted the French police, branding them “bullies”.
Speaking to Richard Madeley and Charlotte Hawkins about the number of tickets allocated to fans, Jimmy said: “UEFA have got a lot to answer for.”
Richard replied: “I have to say so do the French police. I mean, their violence towards completely law-abiding Liverpool fans who were doing nothing wrong – we’ve been showing the pictures all morning – where basically French guards going up to them, just strolling up to them and spraying them in the face with pepper spray. It’s disgraceful, isn’t it?”
Jimmy went on to fume: “Well Richard, we see these pictures that you give us, some of them are kids!
“Nine-year-olds being sprayed by these French bullies! I mean how dare they? Why do you have the final of this competition there?”
