Man United team bus attacked before West Ham game

West Ham beats Man United in final game at Boleyn Ground

It's against them, (United) it's fighting for Europe and everything, a late night game - it couldn't be better. It's not just beating Manchester United, it's the last game in this stadium for the guys.

"There was congestion in the street and they couldn't get the coach in".

The co-chairman then went on to deny reports of the attack that were been shown live across the world by saying, "there was no attack on the coach".

The visiting side's blacked-out coach suffered minor damage with at least one window shattered.

"We put ourselves under pressure by letting them put the ball in the box. 99 per cent of whom behaved impeccably and were a credit to the club", a statement read.

West Ham co-owner David Sullivan said that United was to blame for not arriving earlier for such a high-profile contest.

A police statement said: "We are aware that a number of items were thrown towards Manchester United's coach this evening, Tuesday, 10 May".

"I want to apologise to Manchester United for that damage and assure them that we will be doing all we can to track down those responsible and ban them for life".

A woman and a child are helped outside the ground.

The Football Association announced that it would launch a full investigation.

Dems to GOP senators: Have hearings on Supreme Court nominee

Prior to West Ham United's final clash at Upton Park, the bus carrying their opponents, Manchester United, was attacked and thrashed by rival fans who threw numerous bottles, eggs and flares at it.

The governing body plan to work with both the police and the club to investigate the security operation both inside and outside Upton Park.

West Ham co-chairman David Sullivan, however, was unwilling to accept that anything out of order had even taken place and decided blame the travelling United team for not arriving at the stadium almost four hours before kick-off.

Anyone with information regarding the criminal damage to the coach and objects thrown should contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111. "Even the players who are now in heaven, they wanted this to happen and that's why it's so great and why I'm so proud". The fan was led away by stewards.

Shortly after the incident United captain Wayne Rooney told Sky Sports: "It wasn't nice".

"I don't think that I have to say that because I think the media has filmed it so you can see it by your own eyes, you can make your opinion by yourself because I think the images shall be very clear", he said.

"But I don't think we should look for excuses".

The roars would have been heard down the road at the Olympic Stadium where sixth-placed West Ham could host Europa League matches next season if they finish with another win at Stoke City on Sunday.

"One officer and a member of the public were injured".
