West Ham fan dealt with by police and his own club’s fans after doing Nazi salute at Freiburg

A West Ham fan has been dealt with by police and his own club’s fans after doing a Nazi salute in the Hammers’ game at Freiburg.

Footage has surfaced showing what happened, with his fellow fans giving the culprit a good talking to before he was arrested.

It came in a game which ended on a controversial decision with West Ham not awarded late penalty for handball after lengthy VAR review; Michael Gregoritsch had earlier tapped in late on for Freiburg win.

This isn’t the first time we saw something like this, as a few years back, seven West Ham fans were hunted by police after supporters were spotted making Nazi salutes and mimicking Hitler moustache during Europa League clash with Eintracht Frankfurt.

DC Dickinson said as the time anyone who recognised the men to ‘get in touch immediately’, adding: ‘This was a challenging police operation on the day of the match where arrests were made.

‘But our work does not stop there – officers have been analysing footage and have identified seven individuals we want to trace in connection with abhorrent gestures and comments that were made during that match.

‘This type of behaviour has no place in football or wider society and these people must be held responsible for their actions.’

It happened again for West Ham’s game against Rapid Vienna. A man who made Nazi salutes was fined and handed a three-year football banning order.

Daniel Garner made several Nazi salutes towards away fans during a Europa league game between West Ham United and Rapid Vienna at the London Stadium.

At Stratford Magistrates’ Court , he pleaded guilty to one count of using threatening or abusive or insulting words or behaviour to cause harassment or alarm or distress.

Garner was fined £166 and the prosecution successfully applied for a football banning order which will stop Garner from attending matches for three years.

Nosheen Hussain, from the CPS, said: “Football fans from any country should never have to tolerate abusive behaviour. Daniel Garner’s conduct was insulting and inciteful.

“The prosecution case included CCTV footage which clearly showed Garner making offensive Nazi salutes toward Austrian fans. During police interview he claimed to be intoxicated – but this is no excuse for such vile behaviour.

“The CPS will always aim to prosecute those who seek to cause harassment.”
