The Real Madrid coach spoke about violence in La Liga after clashes between Atletico Madrid and Deportivo La Coruna fans ended in death.

A 43-year-old man was killed after fights erupted in the streets of Madrid ahead of the match at the Vicente Calderon stadium.

The man was taken to hospital after being pulled out of a river near the stadium, but died in hospital later that day.

12 more people were reported injured, with some even suffering stab wounds during the fight between an alleged 200 fans.

24 people have been detained regarding the incident so far, with an inquest ongoing as the Spanish authorities hunt for answers.

There have now been more than ten deaths related to crowd control in Spain since 1982, prompting Ancelotti to speak out about the issues.

“I experienced this in Italy. It’s a sad day. Everybody who works in football hopes that this never happens,” he said.

“It’s important to condemn all this, the violence around football. It’s clear that the whole footballing world has to work to prevent this in the future.

“I have experience in England and I think they have done many things and done very well to eliminate this scourge.

“They had a terrible experience with hooligans, they did an incredible job in dealing with the problems. In Spain they have to do the same to get rid of this plague.”
