According to supporters out in Germany there has been fighting between West Ham United and Newcastle United fans yesterday’s evening in the German city of Dusseldorf.
One Newcastle fan on social media said both sets of fans had been drinking happily together all afternoon until drink got the better of a small section of fans.
Another eye witness said German riot police were called in to break up the scuffles between the two sets of fans. The West Ham squad flew out today for the Schalke Cup being played against Schalke 04, Malaga and Newcastle United.
The trouble mirrors similar scenes last July when West ham fans were filmed throwing bottles in Germany in a pre-season tour before German riot police was called in.
