Champions League: UEFA fines Man Utd £7,000

Manchester United has been fined 8,375 euros (£7,050) by UEFA over their fans’ behaviour during recent European fixtures.

United fans threw objects and invaded the pitch, as the team came from behind to beat Villarreal on September 29.

West Ham must also pay 60,000 euros (£50,500) for crowd trouble that happened during their 2-0 win over Rapid Vienna on September 28.

Rapid have been fined 60,000 euros and banned from having fans travel to their next away European fixture.

This was contained in an extensive disciplinary update published on Thursday by the European governing body, which also shows Paris Saint-Germain have been fined a total of 40,250 euros (£33,900) after fans blocked public passageways and set off fireworks in their 2-0 Champions League win over Manchester City on September 28.

Legia Warsaw must pay 16,000 euros (£13,500) for the blocking of passageways in their 1-0 Europa League win over Leicester on September 30.
