West Ham United ‘disgusted’ over ‘fucking Jew’ chants on train
London – West Ham have vowed to take immediate action against a group of apparent supporters filmed engaging in antisemitic chants prior to Saturday’s Premier League match against Manchester United.
A video circulating on social media shows the group chanting abuse about rivals Tottenham on a tram prior to the match at Old Trafford, which the Hammers lost 2-1.
During the clip, chants heard include: “We’ll be running round Tottenham with out w***** hanging out, singing I’ve got a foreskin how about you, fucking Jew!”
