Zero tolerance for fan violence
– West Ham United co-owner David Gold has offered his support to Manchester United vice-chairman Ed Woodward and said threats and violent protests targeting club officials “cannot be tolerated”.
Police are investigating an attack on Woodward’s home last month after videos emerged on social media showing a group of people in hoods chanting threats and throwing flares over the gate. “I know exactly what Ed’s experienced. I’ve had it four or five times myself,” Gold told the British media.
