Bilbao ban fan who urinated on supporters

MADRID - Athletic Bilbao have identified and barred a supporter who urinated on visiting Anderlecht fans during the Europa League match at San Mames, the La Liga club said in a statement on Saturday.

Bilbao said the fan had apologised unreservedly for his actions and that he had had his club membership suspended pending the outcome of a disciplinary commission hearing.

Television cameras captured the supporter urinating from the upper stands at Thursday's 1-1 draw.

Before the game, Anderlecht fans clashed with police, and after the final whistle there were confrontations between rival fans on the pitch.
