FA to launch West Ham offensive chants’ investigation

FA will launch the formal investigation as regards the West Ham fans’ ‘Hitler’ chants during the clash between Tottenham and West Ham.

The Hummers’ fans allegedly mocked the stabbing of The Spurs’ supporters in Italy and sang offensive anti-semitic chants (“Adolf Hitler, he is coming to you”). There are strong links between the Jewish north London Jewish community and Tottenham management.

Eurosport.com reports West Ham’s coach Sam Allardyce did not hear anything. “I don’t hear what the fans say or do when I’m concentrating as a manager on a game of football,” said Big Sam. “I never heard it so I don’t know. What do you want me to say? If I didn’t hear it, I can’t condemn it. I’ll make a comment after I’ve listened to what they’ve said. I don’t want to be a political animal. I’m here to talk about football, not what fans are saying or singing.”

West Ham management in its turn reassured that it will ¨take the strongest possible action¨ against all those found guilty in offensive chants, including the imposing of life bans.
