The Union of European Football Associations commissioned what it says will be an independent report into the chaotic scene in which some Liverpool fans were tear-gassed and prevented from entering the Stade de France before kickoff of UEFA’s Champions League final Saturday near Paris.

UEFA, soccer’s governing body in Europe, said its review, led by Tiago Brandão Rodrigues of Portugal, would be comprehensive and “examine decision-making, responsibility and behaviors of all entities involved in the final.”

Rodrigues is a member of Portugal’s Parliament and is president of the Parliamentary Committee of Environment and Energy. He formerly was minister of education and was in charge of sports and youth. He was a member of the World Antidoping Agency Foundation Board from 2019-2021 and was the Portuguese Olympic attache during the 2012 Olympic Games in London.
