Arsenal monitoring block of season ticket holders at Emirates after fan ‘hissed’ and used vile anti-Semitic chants

By | 15th April 2019

ARSENAL are continuing to closely monitor a block of season ticket holders in the hope of catching a man accused of anti-Semitic chants.

One supporter left the Emirates on his own accord during December’s game with Tottenham after he was confronted for a series of vile songs.

They included an apparent chant about “gassing Jewish people” and “hissing.”

Spurs have a large Jewish fanbase and Arsenal opened an investigation in the hope of finding the man in question.

With the help of fellow fans, they have been monitoring a small section of the Emirates but it is believed that the man has not returned to the stadium since.

Tottenham have called for a halt on anti-Semitism and released a statement highlighting they have a “zero-tolerance position.”

But West Ham were the latest club to be marred by anti-Semitism after footage showed supporters singing a song including the phrase “f***ing Jews” following their 2-1 defeat to Man United.

The club released a statement that condemned the group’s actions and vowed to slap the culprits with lifetime bans.

It read: “We are disgusted by the contents of the video circulating on social media on Saturday evening.


“We are taking immediate action to try to identify the offenders, whose details we will be handing over to the police and will be banned for life from London Stadium and from travelling with the club.
