West Ham to investigate racism claims
Tuesday 05 April 2011
West Ham United are investigating claims that the families of Victor Obinna and Frédéric Piquionne were racially abused by fans during Saturday's home defeat to Manchester United.
Reports suggested that guests of the two strikers were involved in a confrontation with a group of supporters in the Main Stand.
Meanwhile, manager Avram Grant has been given a two-match touchline ban and fined £60,000 over comments he made about referee Mike Jones after last month's defeat at Stoke.
