An anonymous West Ham supporter recounted that a “sizeable group” of Italian fans launched an assault on the Tek-ila Tek-ila bar situated in the city center on Wednesday.
He further elaborated, saying, “Around eight Italians passed by, wielding bands and chains. Five minutes later, a large group arrived down the street and attacked us.”
The fan expressed concern for a friend who had sustained significant injuries, including a “severe laceration” on his head.
A 17-year-old eyewitness stated that the West Ham fans had “not done anything wrong,” while Fiorentina supporters were observed “throwing flares and firecrackers.”
