Several Feyenoord fans attacked the opposing managers before their team's match against Union Berlin.
strongly condemned the attack by their fans on the directors of Union Berlin, calling it irresponsible.
Reports from the Netherlands indicate that Dirk Zingler and Oskar Kosche, the director of the Berlin Union club, were resting outside their hotel when they were attacked by Feyenoord fans. The two have reportedly suffered minor injuries, and Feyenoord have strongly condemned their attacking fans.
Club's statement reads:
"It was a totally reprehensible event that should not happen to anyone who is a guest in the city for what should be a beautiful European football night.
"Feyenoord thinks it is terrible that this has happened to representatives of Union Berlin. The club therefore distances itself in every possible way from the people who have reduced themselves to this cowardly act and believes that no one who portrays Feyenoord and the city in such an insane way in a negative light can and should call themselves a supporter. The club cannot get over the fact that people think it is in any way acceptable to display such behaviour."
"Feyenoord is of the opinion that the [sporting] battle between two football clubs, in this case Feyenoord and Union Berlin, takes place on the field at all times for 90 minutes and never in any other way, especially not by threatening or injuring. For people who think otherwise, there is zero place at the club.
"Feyenoord also hopes that the perpetrators are found and punished for this shocking case of public violence and although outside its sphere of influence, Feyenoord apologise to Union Berlin for what has happened."
