Amsterdam isn’t worried about AS Roma Hooligans


The police in Rome is concerned that hooligans by AS Roma in Amsterdam and Rotterdam are out on revenge for the destruction which has caused by supporters of Feyenoord in Rome. The Amsterdam Police this morning had no indication of any riots are to be expected. ‘ At the moment it seems that in the media more happens than in real life, ‘ says a spokesman of the Amsterdam police. ‘ Anyway, that image can change from hour to hour. We are monitoring it constantly. We have sufficient troops that are ready to react. ” The police have plenty of contacts with the Italian colleagues. ‘

In addition, we have online and offline private lines. ‘ In these cases, the Corps has a head of information that ‘ through many tricks ‘ should find out if there are groups of hooligans on their way. The Town Hall has according to a spokesperson not ‘ information about which we are concerned ‘. According to the Italian police 2400 ultra’s, supporters of AS Roma, are several radical groups ‘ from the ‘ hard core who will come to the return game against Feyenoord in the Rotterdam Kuip, Thursday. The Italian police tries to follow those notorious ‘ ultra’s ‘.

It is obvious that supporters who come earlier, by train or via Schiphol, will visit Amsterdam before they travel to Rotterdam. That’s usual when international matches of clubs from other Dutch cities are playing. It seems that most fans fly to Rotterdam, and only smaller groups go to Amsterdam.

Rotterdam Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb prepares for an emergency order. This allows the police to do what seems necessary to maintain or restore the peace, such as “preventive stop” of groups of supporters. For example, in a secluded spot where people can be detained, even if they have committed no crime.

This morning mayor Eberhard van der Laan has no reason to issue an emergency order for Amsterdam. That can be arranged in an hour if needed, he says. In for hooligans attractive parts of the city the police can carry out preventive searches. The A1 of Ajax plays tonight at half past six on The Future sports park against AS Roma. That could be an interesting game for early Italian fans (and hooligans) to come to, but this morning was not yet worrying information entered about the coming of groups to that game.
