West Ham fans have been accused of on an altercation on the friends and families of AZ Alkmaar players during the Hammers side’s 2-1 Euro win over the Dutch side at the London Stadium, according to reports in Holland.

AZ general manager Robert Eenhoorn was one who said his wife and family members were Amon those verbally abused along with the partner and two children of head coach Pascal Jansen. The report states those involved were “frightened and shocked” by the incident.

The Dutch club confirmed “It is a competition requirement of UEFA that there is an allocation of 200 ‘VIP’ seats, unfortunately there isn’t a hospitality section located in the visiting supporters section of the stadium so they have to sit in the West Upper at Block 206 to access the hospitality areas of the Stadium”

This section was surrounded by stewards last night and the incident centred around AZ Alkmaar scoring their opening goal and their accompanying celebrations.

A number of AZ Alkmaar supporters, many wearing their club colours were also in many parts of the home sections of the London Stadium last night causing further friction between supporters.

A source close to club confirmed there was a verbal altercation but not a physical one although a couple of drinks were thrown in the direction of the away VIPs.
