Bolton lodges Spain complaint

Bolton Wanderers have launched an official complaint at the actions of the Spanish police which the club considered 'overzealous and disproportionate' mistreatment during the UEFA Cup match with Atletico Madrid.

The club statement continued: "Bolton Wanderers has launched an official protest with UEFA and its security delegates, who witnessed the behaviour of the local police force, and the club is currently in liaison with the Greater Manchester Police and the British Embassy to ascertain further information.

"Bolton Wanderers supporters have an impeccable reputation and an excellent record of good behaviour when travelling abroad to European matches, and the club believes the actions of the Madrid police are entirely unacceptable."
