Following reports of anti-Muslim abuse directed at Mohamed Salah from a West Ham supporter, Kick It Out has released the following statement:

“We are dismayed to see yet another high-profile incident of discrimination in English football – this time a video of disgraceful anti-Muslim abuse aimed at Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah by a West Ham United supporter.

“We have informed the club, The FA and the UK Football Policing Unit and have offered our support to the investigation, which is already underway. We are pleased that West Ham officials have expressed their determination to identify the supporter and take firm action – this type of behaviour is simply unacceptable and must be challenged swiftly and decisively.”
