What was a party turned into a nightmare for Liverpool fans. French Interior Minister Élisabeth Borne initially blamed Reed fans, but the report found French police and organizers to blame.

"It was a sequence of errors at the administrative and decision-making level, everything was very confusing and nobody really felt part of the general organization," said the French Senate. "There was excessive use of force," he added, commenting that the English fans were taken as hostile for no reason.

The senators presented a series of recommendations to correct problems with a view to two major sporting events that France will soon host: the Rugby World Cup next year and the Olympic Games in 2024.

UEFA is also investigating the causes of the chaos that surrounded the world's most momentous club match. The Senate apologized to the Liverpool and Real Madrid fans, saying they were victims and not responsible for what happened, as French authorities initially suggested.

Darmanin also claimed that dispersing the crowd around the stadium fences with tear gas was the only way to prevent an avalanche of people. Many fans reported robberies and assaults after leaving the stadium.
