Fan jerks hurt cops

Some just never learn…

There are violent fan riots again in the Europa Conference League. In the game of the English first division team West Ham United against RSC Anderlecht from Belgium (2:1), some fan idiots seriously injured several police officers.

What happened?

Before and during the Euro-League-Match in London’s Olympic Stadium, West Ham fans and Anderlecht chaotics accost each other, pyrotechnics are ignited again and again.

Then the scandal: Anderlecht fans throw a flare into West Ham’s block, seat shells are also ripped out and used as projectiles.

A streaker also tries to disrupt the game – but it can be stopped by stewards on the pitch just before West Ham keeper Alphonse Areola (29).

An Anderlecht spokesman sharply condemned the riots after the game, emphasizing that the Belgian top club wants to work through the ugly events together with the police and Uefa.

RSC Anderlecht: “We would like to apologize to West Ham. We don’t tolerate that. We condemn this behavior in the strongest possible terms.”

West Ham coach David Moyes (59) also condemned the riots, but also praised Anderlecht’s press office after the game: “It’s good for the press spokesman to support the club. It is a great credit to them as they are a really good football club. They want to protect their own club and rightly so.”

Violent fan riots overshadow the European competitions almost every week. Just last Thursday there were disgusting scenes in the stands in Malmö, Sweden, in the match against Union Berlin (0-1) in the Europa League.

There, Malmö fans, some of whom had been infiltrated by fans of Union archrival Hertha BSC, detonated a ball bomb and threw it in front of the away block.

The game had to be interrupted for a few minutes when the score was 0-0 because Union chaos also shot pyro rockets and pyrotechnics onto the lawn in the 57th minute.

Union boss Dirk Zingler on RTL: “I’m happy about the victory, which was not undeserved. But of course it’s a tarnished victory. It is unacceptable. Nothing and no one has anything to do with the lawn and other blocks. I’m pissed!”

But he also explains: “We invite guests and have to have them under control. We have to evaluate that. We’ll sort it out.”

There were also violent fights and riots in the 1. FC Köln game in Nice (1-1) in the Conference League.
