German police roll out measures to ensure safety of West Ham fans in Frankfurt

German police are going to ensure the safety of West Ham fans in Frankfurt.

The German police are ensuring that West Ham fans will be protected ahead of the Europa League semi final in Frankfurt this evening.

There have been incidents where Irons fans have had to be led away from pubs in Berlin, but there has been nothing major with security already heightened.

The Hammers go into the game with a 2-1 deficit, and will have the support of almost all English fans, who are hoping David Moyes and his side can go one step further and make history.

Eintracht Frankfurt are looking to make their own history by becoming the first German side to reach the final of the modern Europa League, and they will feel they have done enough given their splendid away performances in Barcelona and London.

Eintracht Frankfurt CEO Axel Hellmann confirmed their attendance to Bild: “We have high-ranking guests of Uefa.

“For the first time in the history of Eintracht Frankfurt, the Uefa president will be a guest at a home match.

“Aleksander Čeferin will come together with Secretary General Theodore Theodoridis and his deputy Giorgio Marchetti. This is the highest possible delegation.”

The CEO also called on the fans and his club to help them history by defeating West Ham in reaching the final.

He added: “On Thursday there is a multifaceted opportunity.

“We would like to continue on the Road to Seville. Moving into the final would be an absolute milestone for us and we need your help to make history.”

Frankfurt fans had their hearts broken when they met Chelsea at this stage in 2019 and they will now hope they have their revenge against an English side.
