Millwall chairman Theo Paphitis has condemned Ferencvaros and their fans after revealing he came under attack during Thursday’s Uefa Cup tie.

Paphitis came under a hail of missiles and four Millwall fans were stabbed prior to kick-off.

“Even as a kid I cannot remember it being as bad as that,” said Paphitis.

“We could not leave our seats during the game due to the extra police who had to be summoned to protect us.”

“It was like going back into the dismal time of football that we all try to forget,” he told the London Evening Standard newspaper.

“It was all the things we have spent the last six years trying to put behind us and move forward.

“A variety of things kept flying over. Anything from drink to coins and bits of food.

“When there are women and children there it is not on. It did get hairy at one stage and we missed about 10 minutes of the game because we had to turn around to deal with it.

“I also heard racial chanting and the delegate will be reporting it.”

Uefa is expected to launch an investigation on Friday after a report is filed by its official delegate at the match.
