Five people have been arrested in Manchester city centre following a disturbance involving football supporters, police have confirmed.
One person was also treated for injuries after trouble flared near Sinclair’s Oyster Bar on Exchange Square at around 3.30pm.
Football supporters had been gathering in the city centre ahead of Manchester City’s Champions League game against Sevilla at the Etihad Stadium.
Footage and photographs circulated on social media showing chairs being thrown but details of the incident remained unclear.
A tweet from Greater Manchester Police also suggested Polish football supporters were involved after trouble at nearby Shambles Square.
The tweet read: “3 x Polish Football fans arrested for a violent disorder following the incident at Shambles Square earlier this evening.”

Reports have suggested some of the people involved in the trouble were wearing the colours of Polish club Slask Wroclaw, whose fans have clashed with those of Sevilla recently.
