Peter Crouch disgusted viewers during the Champions League final letting off what seemed to be a massive burp live on television.
The former Liverpool player was on pundit duty to watch the Reds take on Real Madrid in the European final at the Stade de France, Paris. On BT Sports as Owen Hargreaves was speaking, Crouch made the loud noise, shocking those watching at home. One wrote: “Was that a huge burp from Peter Crouch?” Another said: “I thought he farted.” A third said: “Decent buffet pre match.”
Crouchy’s gas was one of the few lighter points of a night shrouded by controversy. The Reds were beaten 1-0 by Los Blancos after Vinicius Junior slotted home in the second half. The Premier League side were unable to come back as Carlo Ancelotti earned his fifth European title as manager.
But much of the talking points have been about how supporters were treated getting into the stadium by the French authorities. Videos emerged of fans being pepper-sprayed, including families and children. The authorities had contained some fans by gates despite them having tickets, while their heavy-handedness to paying supporters has angered many.
UEFA said: “In the lead-up to the game, the turnstiles at the Liverpool end became blocked by thousands fans who had purchased fake tickets which did not work in the turnstiles. This created a build-up of fans trying to get in. As a result, the kick off was delayed by 35 minutes to allow as many fans as possible with genuine tickets to gain access.

“As numbers outside the stadium continued to build up after kick off, the police dispersed them with tear gas and forced them away from the stadium. Uefa is sympathetic to those affected by these events and will further review these matters urgently together with the French police and authorities, and with the French Football Federation.”
But the actions of those in charge has been widely condemned around the world. Liverpool said in a statement: “We are hugely disappointed at the stadium entry issues and breakdown of the security perimeter that Liverpool fans faced this evening at Stade de France.”
