Forte says: It is important that you do not decide to pay attention to the end of the season, "slaughter".
President Rietiker prefers to leave the Lucerne stadium without saying a word. Want to talk about it today: 10 p.m., a media conference is scheduled to start.
In a Communiqué, has expressed the Club on the night of the incident: "It is shameful and simply unacceptable. The risk of spectators, stadium personnel, and players of the Grasshopper-Club Zurich will not take. Rioters break on the Football." The jerseys had been left of the curve, because to escalate "the Situation seemed to be. The decision does not mean that we approve of the unsportsmanlike and humanly questionable behavior. GC calls on the judiciary, the police, the SFA and the League, to go seriously on the books. With fines and sanctions against the Clubs, it is not done. You can't leave the Clubs alone in this Situation."
GC will lose the game by forfeit. And it must come from the spirit of play as a punishment.
