Danny Dyer has given a strong message to people who don’t support their local clubs.
Dyer’s a huge West Ham fan and was in a jubilant mood when he watched his team lift the Europa Conference League trophy on Wednesday night.
Now, Dyer has sent out a message to people who don’t support their local teams.
Speaking to talkSPORT, he said: “Now listen, I’ve got a bit of a pet hate about Cockney Reds.”
When talkSPORT host Darren Bent said he was born and bred in South London, Dyer asked: “So why do you support a North London club?”
Bent said: “Ian Wright is my hero, and he started at (Crystal) Palace, so he went to Palace then went to Arsenal.”
Dyer replied: “So you follow the man and not the club. Listen, you support whoever you want to support. Let me just say something now.
“This is why it was important last night West Ham winning because it’s in my DNA, it’s in my blood.
“I look around in that gaff, everyone speaks the same as me, our dads know each other, it’s in your blood and that’s why it feels so special.”

Speaking about West Ham match winner Bowen, who is also dating his daughter, Dyer said: “I just didn't think I could love a man any more.
“It's always a weird thing because it's your daughter, they fall in love with people you don't usually like but she brought home Jarrod Bowen.
“I think I love Jarrod more than anyone, more than me own wife! I'm a bit jealous of my daughter…”
As a result of their Europa Conference League triumph, West Ham will join Liverpool and Brighton as the English representatives in next season’s Europa League.
