We’ve kept a close eye on the Galatasaray fans over the last few days leading up to their run in with Real Madrid in the quarter finals of this years Champions League. They’ve attacked a Turkish radio station for predicting a loss to Los Blancos. Now footage has come out that they got into a bit of a scuffle last night with local Madrid riot police.
So much for all being quiet from the Istanbul-based fans. We hadn’t heard anything right after the game or this morning, but this footage now tells otherwise. No word on how this mess started or who threw the first missile (awesome word used for any projectile thrown), but something tells me this isn’t the last we’ve heard from the Turks.
Full Disclosure: CotW fully supports any Galatasaray fans’ action and reaction before and after any game in which they have lost, been doubted, and any other negative connotation towards the club.
