West Ham release statement


Filed: Monday, 15th April 2019
By: Staff Writer


West Ham United have released a statement in the wake of a video being published on social media showing a group of men singing an anti-Semitic song.

The video, which has been attributed to a small group of West Ham fans travelling to Saturday's Manchester United clash at Old Trafford was published on Saturday night - since when those involved have been condemned for their behaviour.

And in the wake of this latest example of anti-Semitic behaviour, West Ham promised to ban any fans involved for life.

" "We are disgusted by the contents of the video circulating on social media on Saturday evening," read the unattributed statement.

"We are taking immediate action to try to identify the offenders, whose details we will be handing over to the police and will be banned for life from London Stadium and from travelling with the club.

"West Ham United is unequivocal in its stance there is no place for this kind of behaviour at our club.

"We do not want people like this associated with West Ham. They are not welcome at our Club, they are not welcome in civilised society."
