West Ham stated they had been conscious of the incident and would work to determine the offender.
“According to our zero-tolerance method, anybody recognized could have their particulars handed to the police,” a spokesperson for the Premier League membership stated.
“They are going to be given an indefinite ban and be unable to enter London Stadium and journey with the membership. There isn’t a place for this sort of behaviour.”
Hofmeister wrote on Twitter that they had been “doing OK.”
“Finest needs to all West Ham supporters who love soccer and respect their opponents,” he added.
