After being allegedly attacked by some Club Brugge supporters, a 63-year-old Belgian Manchester City fan is fighting for his life.

The attack came after Manchester City thrashed the host side 5-1 in their UEFA Champions League group stage match on Tuesday at the Jan Breydel Stadium.

Guido De Pauw, the victim, had attended the game with his son Jurgen as part of the Belgium Blue Moon supporters group.

According to The Guardian, Belgian officials have arrested five people suspected of being involved in the incident.

Meanwhile, City said they were “shocked and saddened to hear reports of an attack on one of our supporters” and were working with Club Brugge and Belgian and Greater Manchester police to establish more information. “Our thoughts and best wishes go out to the family and friends of the Belgian-based supporter, who remains in hospital,” the club said.

Club Brugge said they were “horrified” to learn of the incident and added: “Club Brugge strongly disapproves of all criminal behaviour, both inside and outside the stadium and puts tolerance first. Our thoughts go out to the family and friends of the Manchester City supporter.”
