West Ham players worried about friends & family in clash after European win

West Ham players tried to intervene following their 3-1 aggregate victory last night (Thursday, 18 May), when rival fans broke through a fence and assaulted visitors sat in the reserved section following the final whistle of last night’s win.

David Moyes had led his team to a European final – his first of a storied managerial career and the Club’s first since the 1976 European Cup Winners’ Cup final.

West Ham United clinched their place in the UEFA Europa Conference League showpiece with Fiorentina in Prague on 7 June with a dramatic, late Pablo Fornals goal which gave them a 1-0 win on the night in the Netherlands and a 3-1 aggregate success over AZ Alkmaar.

Speaking after the game, West Ham manager David Moyes admits he and the players were worried for his family and friends after the section they were watching from was attacked by AZ Alkmaar supporters.

“I can only tell you there were players involved because it was the family section where most of their family and friends were in and I think that’s why alot of them were there seeing friends and family in that area. That was probably the reason for their reaction. What I don’t want that to do in anyway is blight the night.”

AZ boss Pascal Jansen says it was “unacceptable.”

“I feel a little bit ashamed that it happened in our stadium, it shouldn’t be happening. But then again, you have to control your emotions. Even though the game didn’t go as planned, you have to stay in control of your emotions,” he said.
