A Manchester City fan is in hospital after he was attacked while travelling home from Tuesday's Champions League game against Club Brugge.

The Belgium-based supporter was attacked at a service station on the E40 motorway in Drongen.

He was taken to a hospital in Ghent.

Manchester City said in a statement: "Everyone at Manchester City is shocked and saddened to hear reports of an attack on one of our supporters after the Champions League game in Bruges last night.

"We are currently working with our counterparts at Club Brugge as well as Belgian and Greater Manchester Police to establish more information.

"Our thoughts and best wishes go out to the family and friends of the Belgian-based supporter, who remains in hospital."

Brugge added: "Club Brugge was horrified to learn of the events at the E40 motorway parking lot in Drongen where a Manchester City supporter, who had previously been a guest at the Jan Breydel Stadium, was attacked.

"Club Brugge strongly disapproves of all criminal behaviour, both inside and outside the stadium and puts tolerance first. Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of the Manchester City supporter."

Belgian authorities have confirmed five arrests were made after a Manchester City fan was left in critical condition following an attack in Drongen.

Guido De Pauw, 63, two friends and his son were in a car park when a Club Brugge fan took his scarf and struck him in the head.

The East Flanders Public Prosecutor's office released a statement to confirm that an investigation is under way.

What has been said?
“Last night around 10.40pm, an incident took place in the parking lot of the E40 Drongen towards Brussels,” it begins.

“A man wearing a Manchester City scarf had stopped his car in Drongen after the Club Brugge - Manchester City football match and had gone into a shop.

“According to the first findings of the investigation, his football scarf was taken in the shop by a suspect and he walked outside with it.

“Subsequently, the victim came into confrontation with some suspects in the parking lot, and ended up on the ground after being physically assaulted.

“The emergency services arrived on the scene. The victim, a 63-year-old man from Ninove, was taken to hospital. He is in mortal danger. There were a number of witnesses to the facts.

“Due to these facts, the police arrested five people during the night. They were arrested by order of the East Flanders Public Prosecutor's Office. The investigation is in full swing.”

Five men were arrested after a 63-year-old City fan, who is Belgian, was hospitalised after being attacked at a service station on the E40 motorway in Drongen on Tuesday, following the 5-1 win for City at the Jan Breydel Stadium.

One suspect has been charged with theft with violence and theft with aggravated violence, another with intentional beatings and incapacitating injuries, and all five with culpable negligence, the East Flanders prosecutor's office said in a statement on Friday.

The five men were brought before a judge in the city of Ghent on Thursday. Three have been released under strict conditions, including a ban on attending football matches, and two have remained detained, prosecutors added.

Prosecutors said on Wednesday the victim had life-threatening injuries. In their latest update on Friday, they said he was "still in a coma but his condition is now stable"

Pep did this afternoons Presser wearing a T-Shirt with the words printed on it

We're With you Guido

He then opened with....

“On behalf of everyone at the club, for him we are quite optimistic. In the last hours he is getting better and has the support from everyone at the club..

"A big hug for him and his family. We wish him to be back at the stadium. It's difficult to understand why this terrible kind of thing will happen.”

Scumbag cunts, not fans, should be afforded the full force of the law. How anybody could attack anybody for turning up to a game, especially somebody of his era, is a fucking disgrace. Shithouse cunts who don’t understand the reality of what can happen, as long as they look good in front of their mates.

These people were the piss-ants that I got a slap off a teacher for because I was looking after those that were bullied.

PS. Well done City, hopefully Guido will get through and see what’s been said. KDB a personal touch.
