Eintracht Frankfurt president hits out at West Ham as war of words intensifies ahead of Europa League semi-final

Eintracht Frankfurt president Peter Fischer has hit out at West Ham officials ahead of the huge Europa League semi-final clash on Thursday night.

The Hammers play host to the Bundesliga outfit at the London Stadium in two day’s time for what is the biggest game in our recent history.

Eintracht Frankfurt have been allocated roughly 3,000 away tickets for the match against West Ham.

The Hammers have made it very clear to the German club that they will do their utmost to prevent any travelling fans from buying tickets elsewhere inside the London Stadium.

That’s fair enough right! Since when has football become a game whereby fans of opposing teams mix inside the grounds?

Tribalism amongst the fans is what makes football the sport that it is. The powers that be at Eintracht Frankfurt don’t seem to agree with that notion though…

Eintracht Frankfurt president hits out at West Ham ahead of semi-final

The Hammers are well within our rights to limit the number of Eintracht Frankfurt fans who try and get inside the London Stadium on Thursday night.

Eintracht Frankfurt president Peter Fischer shared how he believes that West Ham are in the wrong though, when speaking to Westfälische Nachrichten:

“This is the worst rubbish. I’m ashamed of football that we’re already being threatened today.”

It is utterly bizarre how numerous Frankfurt officials continue to criticise West Ham for the way we are going about preventing their fans from invading our home stadium.

What do they expect? For us to give them another three or four thousand tickets to even up the playing field?

It’s about time that the German club stopped coming out with utter nonsense. It’s time to do the talking on the pitch. And hopefully West Ham silence Eintracht Frankfurt in the Europa League semi-finals on Thursday.
