New Delhi [India], May 1 (ANI): Liverpool CEO Peter Moore has issued a statement asking the supporters of the football club to behave themselves in Barcelona after few fans were filmed pushing the local people into the Placa Reial square fountain.
"We proudly sing that we’ve conquered all of Europe. But let’s treat this beautiful city with the respect that it deserves, and act in a manner that is befitting of LFC. By all means, have a good time, but we are Liverpool, and as such, let’s visit here with grace and humility," Liverpool CEO tweeted on Wednesday.

Many English fans flocked to the Reial square on Tuesday, ahead of the Champions League semi-final between Liverpool and Barcelona.
Fans were seen hanging the banners from the railings and chanted club anthem after which the events quickly escalated.
