Roma have issued an official official apology to referee Anders Frisk after he was struck on the head by an object thrown from the stands during last night’s Champions League match against Dynamo Kyiv.
The incident left Frisk with a head wound and resulted in the match being abandoned.
“I want to apologise officially to the referee, to whom we gave all possible medical attention,” the club’s sporting director Franco Baldini said.
“Frisk was checked over by our doctors and accompanied back to his hotel at 1.30am.”
“There were 400 police plus 400 of our own employees on hand to make sure the match took place in the most correct way possible.
“We will give our full assistance to catch the person responsible (for throwing the object).”
Meanwhile, Roma’s administrative delegate Rosella Sensi, was quick to berate the actions of the person responsible.
“This was a gesture of madness that will ruin all the efforts of the team and the club,” Sensi said.
“Presumably we could now face a fine of 20 million euros. We are considering seeking damages against the person who threw the object.”
