“We are aware that there were some supporters outside the Boleyn Ground who didn’t act in an appropriate way,” a club statement read.
The Football Association also condemned the “unsavoury incidents”.
It added: “We will work closely with both clubs and the Metropolitan Police to fully investigate these matters.” West Ham eventually won the Premier League match 3-2 in what was their final game at the ground before moving to the Olympic Stadium.
The club statement continued: “It was an extraordinary night full of extraordinary moments in front of extraordinary fans, 99% of whom behaved impeccably and were a credit to the club. “We have already had thousands of tweets and emails from fans to say how proud they were to be a part of such a special evening in West Ham’s history.
“However, we are aware that there were some supporters outside the Boleyn Ground who didn’t act in an appropriate way when the Manchester United team bus was damaged. “That was not acceptable and we will work with the police to identify those responsible and ban them for life.”
West ham will be disappointed!
“I don’t understand why United couldn’t get here at 4 pm,” he said. “They could have got here early. They knew it would be busy. It’s crazy. There was congestion in the street and they couldn’t get the coach in. There were people around the coach, but there was no attack on the coach.”
