“We are aware that there were some supporters outside the Boleyn Ground who didn’t act in an appropriate way,” a club statement read.[3]

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.[9]

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.[3]

“However, [1]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!

“It wasn’t nice, the coach got smashed up,” said Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney told Sky Sports.[5] “I’m sure West Ham as a club will be disappointed with what the fans have done.”

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal, whose side missed a chance to move up into fourth in the table added: “I think the images shall tell everything.”[4]

Speaking immediately in the wake of the incident, West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan played it down,saying that their opponents should have arrived earlier.[1]

“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.[8] There were people around the coach, but there was no attack on the coach.”

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said an “appropriate policing plan” was in place, adding: “We are aware that a number of items were thrown towards Manchester United’s coach.[6]

“One police officer and a member of the public sustained minor injuries. There have been no arrests.”[1]
