Manchester City Fans Baton-Charged By Spanish Riot Police
Woah. We heard there had been some skirmishes but that’s some pretty damning proof.

As HuffPost Sport notes, this footage has been widely condemned by several figures within the footballing community. If any of our English-club-supporting Kickettes plan on travelling to upcoming CL matches in Europe, we hope you do it with caution and care.
