West Ham United have given an indefinite ban to the fan who taunted West Bromwich Albion’s Jake Livermore during the match between the two clubs at the London Stadium on 2 January.

The fan is said to have made comments to Livermore referring to the death of his son in 2014.

Livermore responded by going towards the crowd to confront the fan but the FA announced earlier this week that the West Brom midfielder will face no action.

West Ham conducted an investigation into the incident and have decided to ban the fan involved from attending matches.

The club said in a statement:

“West Ham United have issued an indefinite ban to the supporter involved in a verbal altercation with West Bromwich Albion’s Jake Livermore.

“After a full investigation conducted by the Club, which included statements from supporters in close proximity of the incident and evidence from Jake Livermore and West Bromwich Albion officials, the individual was found to have violated a number of London Stadium ground regulations and will be unable to attend home or away matches with immediate effect.”
