West Ham fans BANNED from Europa League after leaving Fiorentina player bloodied with missile in final

WEST HAM fans have been banned from attending the club’s first Europa League away game of next season after a rocket throw ruined their Conference League win.

The Hammers players begged supporters to stay calm following the first-half incident during the match in Prague.

Fiorentina defender Cristiano Biraghi suffered a broken head when two hard plastic beer mugs hit his head while he was also subjected to a disposable vape.

UEFA announced an investigation into the incident the day after the final.

And European football’s governing body has dealt a blow to the Hammers with a fine as well as a travel ban.

Uefa announced: “The Control and Disciplinary Authority has decided to ban West Ham United FC from selling tickets to away supporters for Uefa’s next two matches.

“The second person was suspended from probation for two years, from the date of this decision, for throwing objects.”

West Ham were fined £43,000 for the incident, plus another £6,900 for trespassing by nearly the entire bench including David Moyes as they celebrated Jarrod Bowen’s late goal.

The Londoners face going into the season without captain Declan Rice, who is linked with Arsenal and Manchester City.

But manager David Moyes seems to be hinting that he will stay with the club, after leading them to the silver trophy for the first time since 1980.


“I hope we can continue to make progress,” he said.

“I think we’ve made it in the last two or three years and last night improved because we won a trophy. It’s great that we won a trophy.

“It’s very difficult to compete at the top every season but all you can do is give your best every season and that’s what we do – and next season that’s what we do.” I will do.”
