Liverpool Fans In Outrage Over Richard Keys Heysel Outburst

Anfield supporters want Talksport presenter sacked for accusing fans of revenge mission.

Liverpool fans have reacted angrily to an outrageous accusation made by Talksport presenter Richard Keys about the Heysel Stadium disaster.

The 53-year-old accused the Scousers of causing the tragedy, which left 39 Juventus fans dead, because they wanted vengeance for the beating they received from Roma fans the year before.

“Liverpool fans were looking for revenge the next time they were playing an Italian team,” he said on Talksport.

The Daily Star reports Reds fans are furious with this suggestion and want the disgraced former Sky Sports presenter to be disciplined.

“There is no way what happened was revenge. Keys is talking rubbish again. The sooner he’s out of a job the better,” said Gordon Fidler of Liverpool Supporters Club.

“Is he totally brainless? Done my best not to swear but i do feel so angry. Talksport must reprimand him over this,” a Caughtoffside reader commented.

Both Talksport and Liverpool FC both refused to comment.
