A West Ham United supporter has been banned from attending matches for three years after he pleaded guilty to racially abusing Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah.

Bradley Thumwood, 48, was handed a ban ordering after appearing at Thames Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday following an incident during West Ham’s 2-0 defeat by Liverpool at the London Stadium on January 29.

‘Thumwood was issued with a three-year Football Banning Order and fined £400. He was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge and costs amounting to £125,’ the Metropolitan Police said in a statement.

West Ham vowed to take a ‘zero-tolerance approach’ to any future incidents of a similar nature but also said they will look to educate Thumwood to reform his views.

‘The club works closely with Kick It Out and our fan group BAME Hammers,’ a club spokesperson said.

‘In conjunction with those parties, the club will offer educational sessions to the individual in question in an effort to reform their views, whilst reserving the right to uphold their indefinite bans, should those efforts prove unsuccessful.’

‘We do not, and will not tolerate hate crime of any kind at football matches and will take action against those who are found to have committed these kinds of crimes during games,’ he said.

Bournemouth 1-0 Bristol City: Danjuma’s late strike moves the Cherries up to second in Championship

bournemouth 1 0 bristol city danjumas late strike moves the cherries up to second in championship

Arnaut Danjuma earned praise from his manager after climbing off the bench to maintain Bournemouth’s unbeaten league record with victory at home to promotion rivals Bristol City.

The Cherries move up to second in the Championship table while their opponents are now winless in four games and slip down to sixth place.

Both sides struck the woodwork in difficult conditions on the south coast before Danjuma’s decisive intervention late in the game.

On the Dutch international’s winner, Bournemouth boss Jason Tindall said: ‘When you look around and see someone with the quality of Arnaut Danjuma to go on there and deliver the 20 minutes that he did, it is excellent for us.’

On the unbeaten run, Tindall added: ‘To go eight games undefeated at the start of the season in any league is a really good achievement and the players have to take a lot of credit for that for the hard work they have put in. That is where we want to be, towards the top of the league.’

Young Robins striker Antoine Semenyo carved out the first opportunity, twisting and turning inside the box before firing wide.

The visitors looked more dangerous going forward with Tyreeq Bakinson forcing Asmir Begovic into a brilliant full-length low save. 

They were denied again when Joshua King leapt to clear Tomas Kalas’ header off the line before a swift counter saw Dominic Solanke’s effort from a narrow angle deflected just wide.

With seconds remaining in the first half, Bristol City’s Famara Diedhiou wriggled through several challenges inside the box but saw his scuffed shot deflected onto the post.

The hosts should have taken the lead when Lloyd Kelly burst into the box and squared for Solanke but the ball somehow ricocheted off the woodwork, before Stanislas fired inches wide as the pressure built.

After Diedhiou’s weak header was saved by Begovic, the hosts had claims for a penalty waved away when Solanke was felled by keeper Dan Bentley while trying to force a loose ball home.

With 10 minutes left, Solanke slipped substitute Danjuma through to convert smartly for the winning goal.

Dean Holden threw on Chris Martin and Nakhi Wells in search of a winner but the Robins boss was left rueing missed opportunities as his side fell eight points behind leaders Reading.

He said: ‘We have absolutely dominated the first half and I don’t think anyone can argue with that. They haven’t had a shot on goal really, Bentley has had nothing to do. We switch off with ten minutes to go against quality players and they make you pay.’

Bale, 31, started the north Londoners’ 3-0 win at home to Austrians LASK in last Thursday’s Europa League Group J opener.

And ahead of their clash with Royal Antwerp in Belgium, Mourinho revealed: “Bale is playing. I can see it with my eyes and the scientific data is also telling us he is working very well and improving a lot.

“He’s working very hard and has been a great example for everybody.

“A big guy like him travelled to Burnley on Monday, stayed on the bench for 90 minutes and his behaviour as a team guy has been incredible.

“His behaviour as a Tottenham man is remarkable.

“We will see he is already at a good level and, hopefully, he can fly.”

Defenders Eric Dier and Japhet Tanganga have not travelled with the squad following their recent injuries.

Striker Son Heung-min, who scored the only goal in the 1-0 win at Burnley, has travelled after signing a deal with the same agency which represents Mourinho.

But the Spurs boss denied it will lead to a conflict of interest with the South Korean, who is set to talk with chairman Daniel Levy about a new contract.

Mourinho added: “I don’t care who represents players, I just care about what players give me on the pitch.

“In relation to his contract, I am not worried about it because he has three years remaining.

“I am sure sooner or later that will be resolved.”

Antwerp also won their first match in Group J, beating Ludogorets 2-1 away.

And Mourinho admitted: “This will be our toughest match of the group phase.”
