Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has said he “totally supports” the fans who protested against ticket prices during the Champions League victory over Anderlecht
UEFA have decided to open disciplinary proceedings against Bayern after supporters threw fake money onto the pitch during the match.
European football’s governing body said on Thursday that it was charging the Bundesliga champions over an “illicit banner” and the “throwing of objects.”
The case will be heard by its ethics and disciplinary body on Dec. 7.
Bayern fans were charged €100 for their allocated tickets, and their protest led to play briefly being delayed.
They displayed a banner that read: “Is your gr€€d now finally satisfi€d?”
But Heynckes told a news conference ahead of the weekend match at Borussia Monchengladbach: “What are they paying, €100? I totally support the protest — the fans are absolutely right, it is justified.
“It is crazy — the fans cannot afford this. It is practically an invitation to stay at home. It is not OK.
“We need to keep prices moderate for football fans, we need the fans. Games without atmosphere are bad for football.”
