Physical altercations broke out in the Schalke fan block during Schalke's 2-1 away defeat by Hertha BSC. As the club and the Berlin police announced on Monday, several people were injured.
Accordingly, police officers are said to have been injured in “clashes between several spectators”, the police tweeted. Schalke fans are said to have attacked each other after the defeat. "Our emergency services then intervened and were attacked. Several colleagues were injured by kicks and punches," the police said.
"Further conclusions cannot yet be drawn from the situation picture that the club currently has," said S04. "FC Schalke 04, together with fans and members, fundamentally and independently condemns any kind of violence, which is clearly and immovably laid down in the jointly adopted mission statement," the statement said.
