West Ham United have issued a statement condemning the abuse shouted at Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah during the Monday night clash at the London Stadium, and fans have been having their say.

The abuse directed towards the Egypt international came as he prepared to take a corner near a group of home supporters, but at least one individual took the occasion too far.

The fan in question could be heard shouting expletives and taunts based on the winger’s religion, which led to an official club and police investigation.

West Ham completed their investigation into the matter on Thursday, February 7, and issued the following statement:

“After a thorough and immediate investigation following the abhorrent racist abuse aimed at Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah on Monday night, West Ham United can confirm that it has handed evidence to the Metropolitan Police.

“The Club is unequivocal in its stance – such abuse will not be tolerated. There is no place or excuse for this kind of behaviour.”

When shared on the club’s official Twitter page, fans took the opportunity to share their views on the matter…

  • Appalling behaviour by an absolute idiot. I don’t know why it’s referred to as ‘racist’ abuse as it was clearly an anti-Muslim comment, so religious bigotry rather than racist.
