Five men have been arrested in Manchester after a group of Sevilla fans were attacked a city centre bar, police have confirmed.
One man was treated for a head injury at the scene after clashes broke out near Sinclair’s Oyster Bar on Exchange Square just before 15:30 local time.
Reports initially suggested that the aggressors were from Poland, possibly supporters of Slask Wroclaw, and Greater Manchester Police confirmed that “three Polish football fans” were arrested following the incident outside Sinclair’s.
