By  Sunday, 22.11.2015, 17:12    Bayern Munich

Before the 3: 1 victory of the FC Bayern Munich against the FC Schalke 04 on Saturday (November 21) night in Gelsenkirchen, some Bayern supporters have “extremely violently attacked” fans of the FC Schalke 04. Many people were injured, some seriously.

"The Bayern Munich dissociates itself unequivocally and in due form of this so-called supporters of our club," said Karl-Heinz Rummenigge, chairman of Bayern, after the game.

"Violence cannot and should never be tolerated. It is absolutely inexplicable to us, how such a thing can happen after the terrible events of Paris It is disrespectful of the society and football. I have expected that fans of FC Bayern will behave appropriately, sensitively and decent. Most of them did, but unfortunately not all, and I am very disappointed. I apologize to FC Schalke and all those who suffered damage.”
