Ex-Liverpool player’s press conference halted by ultras


It was supposed to be a landmark day in the managerial career of one former Liverpool player but it was marred by events during his press conference.

Albert Riera was being formally released as manager of Olympija Ljubljana and held a press conference with the gathered media, which soon came to an abrupt end.

Ultras from the Slovenian club’s fanbase stormed the media room and soon circled the Spaniard during his interviews.

Thanks to Twitter user @BrothersDarknessthe footage has been shared online alongside the caption: ‘The ultras of Olimpija Ljubiljana expel Albert Riera in his presentation as the new coach of the club’.

It looks like the 40-year-old has a bit of work to do in order to win over the supporters at his new club, with the club finishing third in the last campaign.

This does seem a little unfair on the man to step through the door and already have such a headache to deal with, ahead of what looks to be a volatile atmosphere from his new team’s fans.
