Feyenoord director Eric Gudde expects Roma to be fined after their Europa League encounter on Thursday evening.

The match ended 1-1 but was overshadowed by drunken Dutch supporters destroying much of Rome prior to the game, smashing monuments and leaving wreckage strewn all over the city.

“Let’s be clear, what happened was reprehensible. When our fans visit a city they should leave it as they found it,” Gudde told media outlet Nos.

However, he also mentioned that the Italian club should be punished by European football’s governing body for incidents inside the ground. “UEFA makes decisions based on what happens inside the stadium. I expect Roma to be fined for throwing flares during the match.”

Italian police arrested a number of Feyenoord hooligans in the Campo de’ fiori square, as fans went on the rampage, many of whom had been drinking for much of the day.
