Violence erupts as PSG celebrate

Paris Saint-Germain have condemned the actions of a "few hundred troublemakers" after violent scenes marred the club's Ligue 1 trophy parade and left a number of fans in hospital.

An estimated 10,000 people took to the streets of Paris to celebrate the club's first title in 19 years, but the party was cut short after a section of fans clashed with police.

The eruption of violence left several supporters injured while damage was inflicted around the Trocadero, the Champs-Elysees and at the Eiffel Tower.

In the aftermath, French police admitted they were wrong not to have anticipated such a large crowd, while Paris mayor Bertrand Delano simply labelled the incidents as "a shame".

"The province may have underestimated the event," Police official Fabien Vanhemelryck told RMC. "We should have expected this. We were on the same device as for returning Olympians on the Champs-Elysees.

"It was not the same crowd, not the same fans."

However, PSG have been quick to associate the violence with those "trying to destroy" the club's dream of becoming a football force.

"Today should have been a day of celebration for the city of Paris, for the club, our fans and partners," read a statement on the club's official website, psg.fr.

"The party was spoiled by a few hundred troublemakers who have nothing to do with football and even less with those that fill the Parc des Princes on match days with such passion and enthusiasm and in total security.

"All the members of the club, the players and the directors, express to all those loyal and passionate fans their heartfelt regret that today's trophy presentation ceremony had to be cut short.

"Paris Saint-Germain is more determined than ever to build a huge European club, worthy of the French capital, and far removed from those intent on trying to destroy that dream."
