LaLiga: Barcelona players attacked by fans after winning title
Barcelona players were attacked by Espanyol fans while they were celebrating their LaLiga title win on Sunday.
They had to run into the dressing room after the fans invaded the pitch and started running toward them.
Security guards quickly intervened to keep players and the club’s officials safe.
Riot police had to stand in front of the tunnel’s entrance with shields to prevent the fans from going after the players.
The supporters threw chairs and other objects before dispersing without any other incidents.
Espanyol have now apologized for the incident.
“We should always condemn violence, in all aspects of life.
“Everything was done to try to keep this from happening but it wasn’t possible,” Espanyol coach Luis García said.
Barcelona won their first league title since 2019 thanks to a 4-2 victory in the Derby.
