French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin has finally apologised for the chaos at the Champions League final…but not directly to Liverpool fans.

The senior government official admitted bad management was to blame for the carnage at the Stade de France, but showed little remorse directly towards the Reds fans he smeared in the aftermath of the final.

Of course, I readily apologise towards everyone who suffered from this bad management of the event.” Darmanin openly lied about “ticketless fans” being to blame for the scenes at the stadium, where Liverpool fans were subjected to illegal and dangerous kettling, and then locked out and tear-gassed as they peacefully queued to enter.

Now he seems to have taken aim at the French police who so brutally treated Liverpool fans, and suggested he would make changes - and could even replace controversial head of Paris police, Didier Lallement.

Darmanin had tried to shift the blame from the French authorities - as police tear-gassed innocent ticket-holders, including women and children - onto Liverpool supporters, to obscure the failure of police and officials under his control.

But speaking on Tuesday, when asked directly on TV if he would apologise as the true facts came to light, he said: “Should the Stade de France have been better managed?

The Interior Minister had initially claimed that 70 per cent of people present at the stadium were without tickets, a figure which would have amounted to almost 130,000 people.
