Arsenal Football Club has congratulated its travelling fans for their impeccable behaviour before, during and after yesterday’s victory in Marseille.

More than 1,400 supporters made the trip to the notoriously passionate Stade Velodrome and won praise from all quarters, including local police, Marseille and Uefa.

The game passed off without incident and Arsenal’s Head of Travel, Sue Campbell, said: “The fans were fantastic and did us proud. They worked with us and Marseille in advance to understand what was required and followed the guidelines perfectly.

"They were tremendous ambassadors for the Club.”
