Allardyce wants fans to sort out racists

Published Add your comment

Sam Allardyce has urged the West Ham faithful to grass up their fellow supporters if they think they are guilty of chanting the anti-Semitic songs that shocked English football last weekend.

A section of West Ham fans mocked the stabbing of a Spurs fan in Rome during Tottenham's 3-1 victory over their London rivals at White Hart Lane on Sunday. A group of away fans were heard hissing, mimicking the sound of Jews being gassed during the Second World War, and also chanted the name of Adolf Hitler.

Hammers boss Allardyce told a press conference on Tuesday: "I don't view any type of chanting (of that nature) to be allowed or accepted in the game of football today. I think that fans who are next to these people should deal with them first and foremost if possible."
