Video of a Liverpool supporter apparently pushing innocent bystanders into a fountain in Barcelona has surfaced on social media. Two videos show two different men being shoved forcefully into the water at Barcelona’s Plaça Reial, while other fans either do nothing or encourage the attacker.

Liverpool FC are reportedly working with the Merseyside Police to identify those involved.
In addition, Liverpool chief executive Peter Moore tweeted “let’s treat this beautiful city with the respect that it deserves, and act in a manner that is befitting of LFC.”
Barcelona reporters also complained the state that Liverpool supporters left the Plaça Reial in. Video of the vacated space full of litter was also shared on social media.
I've seen some people saying all fans leave places a mess like this, but I don't think that makes it any better if true.— Luis Mazariegos (@luism8989) May 1, 2019
In addition we have seen with, for example, Japanese fans, that it's totally possible for football supporters to be respectful.pic.twitter.com/G0IOSaUphe
