Don't blame me, says fight steward

The steward who was recorded standing by whilst a fight broke out in front of him during last night's Europa League clash with Astra had defended his actions.

Tunveer Teey Ch took to Facebook earlier today after videos of him failing to intervene in the ugly scenes spread across social media.

The steward was accused of idly standing by whilst the fracas erupted in front of him. However he has since taken to social media to refute suggestions that he refused to act.





"I am the steward in orange," wrote Teey. "That's the fourth fight the Indian guy had within two-and-a-half minutes. There's not much you can do.

"The guy started on everyone and I was in the midst of many punches thrown, he was begging for it. My response team took ages to come and I don't have a license to touch anyone.

"I told the Indian guy to go, but he had unfinished business."

The steward also explained how the fight - just one of many witnessed inside the stadium since the move from Upton Park - began.

"The guy was standing up shouting random things aggressively and a supporter behind him told him to sit down and not to swear. He swore at the lad in front of his children, who received multiple punches.

"I broke that up but he got into another fight - and then another, with the guy in a reddish top. Finally he got knocked down the stairs by the guy you all see in the video."
