S.L. Benfica QF 2022

<< < (60/61) > >>

Levitz:
Thought Lisbon was lovely and the people were very friendly. Great trip marred a little by the travel chaos (cancelled flights), queues at passport control (I swear the border forces agents were on lunch) and aggressive policing with little stewarding. Still those bits will fade, great result especially looking at some of the other........

We waited ages then let us through, but there was a bit of a surge and I got pushed into the police line, I couldn't do anything or go anywhere else. At first I thought they were just going to let me through between 2 of them, but one started swinging at me.
Bit of a blur, but just covered me head, and tried to move left, which left my ribs open for him to swing the baton at. Got a huge baton sized bruise down my side this morning.

Once through the line a suited guy and a uniformed officer took me to one side, I thought it was going to get worse and I was to be thrown out. But they said they saw what happened and wanted to apologise to me and on behalf of the Lisbon police.

I was a bit shocked through the first half and tried to find a LFC steward to report it to, but could not find one. Found one official from the club and was just told to send an email

So sorry this happened mate. Sounds awful. I thought they were heavy handed in Seville, but this is another level. Hope you ok Craig.

I hope the lads that got belted by police batons are OK - and that it didn't spoil the game or trip too much for yous. It did leave a bit of a nasty taste for me after what was a great trip and like others have said a lovely city and nice people generally.
