Paris police chief replaced after UCL final chaos for Liverpool and Madrid fans

Didier Lallement will be officially replaced as chief of Paris police on Thursday, saying he was left "wounded by the failure" at the Stade de France in the Champions League final.

Real Madrid's 1-0 win over Liverpool was overshadowed by crowd problems before and after the match as Reds fans, including young children, were crushed, sprayed with tear gas and denied entry despite holding valid tickets.

Lallement cited the behaviour of Liverpool supporters as a key factor in the fiasco but then apologised to them in June, saying he was "the only one responsible" for the incidents.

His exit is not directly linked to the events in Saint-Denis as he had already announced to his troops he would head into retirement this summer ahead of his 66th birthday on August 27.
