Chelsea manager Antonio Conte had his say about the clash on the terraces between Chelsea and West Ham supporters in the EFL Cup Round Four at the Olympic Stadium last time out.
“Situations like the one that occurred at West Ham last Wednesday are never good – Conte admitted – We need to speak about this and to understand why it happened”.
“I’ve always said and remarked that the stadium atmosphere here in England is fantastic, so it’s a pity”.
It is understood that both sides condemned the riot occurred in occasion of the game.
An official statement from West Ham read: “West Ham United and London Stadium partners unreservedly condemn the behaviour of individuals involved in incidents during this evening’s fixture with Chelsea.
“Whilst quickly brought under control, the club, in line with its clear zero tolerance policy, will work closely with London Stadium 185, the Metropolitan Police Service and Chelsea to identify the individuals involved.
“Once identified, those found to have acted improperly will be banned from attending any West Ham United fixtures for life and we will request the courts serve banning orders to prevent these individuals attending any other football.”
