The French interior minister, Gérald Darmanin, has apologised to “everyone who suffered from bad management” at the Champions League final in Paris.

Of course, I readily apologise towards everyone who suffered from this bad management of the event.” After the match supporters complained of being robbed by local gangs and said police, who had earlier employed heavy-handed methods in an attempt to deal with the growing crowd issue, had offered no protection.

However, Darmanin, who has made strongly disputed claims about the number of counterfeit tickets in circulation at the Stade de France, stopped short of saying sorry to the Liverpool fans he blamed for the problems on the night of the club’s defeat by Real Madrid.

The answer is yes,” he told the French radio station RTL after supporters were locked out and teargassed after serious congestion problems developed.

The answer is yes.

We don’t believe it’s the number mentioned in France, which was more or less 30,000 to 40,000.”

“I changed the organisation to fight against delinquency because, if there was something that went wrong at the Stade de France, it was the fight against delinquency.” This month Darmanin apologised to a French Senate committee hearing for “the disproportionate use of teargas” but his claims that 30,000 to 40,000 supporters without tickets or with fake tickets travelled to the Stade de France were rejected by a Uefa official, Martin Kallen.
