A West Ham Fan Lost Their Finger During Genk Match, Footage Has Emerged Online


A West Ham Fan Lost Their Finger During Genk Match, Footage Has Emerged Online

A West Ham United fan appears to have lost one of their fingers during Thursday's Europa League clash with Genk.


The Hammers drew 2-2 out in Belgium to remain top of Group H and undefeated in Europe this season.

Away from the pitch however, one supporter looks to have suffered a serious injury while celebrating one of Said Benrahma's goals.


Videos have emerged online of what looks like a human finger sitting on the Cegeka Arena railings. WARNING: The video below is graphic.

If that is a real finger, then what the hell was happening in the away end? One of the strangest football injuries you'll ever see.


The Mirror report that the fan did receive medical attention and others were quick to notice the issue.

Back in the action, David Moyes couldn't celebrate his 1000th game as a manager with a victory.

Joseph Paintsil gave Genk a 1-0 lead inside four minutes after coolly slotting past goalkeeper Alphonse Areola.

West Ham had run out 3-0 winners over Genk in the reverse fixture but found it much tougher at their ground.

Benrahma scored just before the hour mark to draw West Ham level and he then gave them the lead eight minutes before time.

However, in one final twist, Tomas Soucek directed the ball into his own net to see the game end 2-2.

Moyes told West Ham's official website: "It was a test for us, it really was. In the first half, we didn't start the game as well as we have done, but credit to Genk because they did.


"More for them, I think they probably felt they had to go for it in some way, but we knew it and we didn't sort of match them as well as I'd hoped.

"I even felt in the ten or 15 minutes before half-time that we had some great chances to score, but we didn't take them."

When asked if the result was an underwhelming one, he replied: "I'm not disappointed. I'm thinking that if we win at home and draw away then we're doing OK.

"I think there were bits of the game we didn't enjoy and we gave up too many opportunities in the opening 20 minutes.

"I thought our football after that was very good, but it was just about finishing it off and making the right passes and right decisions and we didn't quite do that.

"We played well in the second half and the more disappointing thing was maybe that we didn't get a third goal after we went 2-1 up, which we maybe should have done.

"Because it came late on, we were trying to see it through, but unfortunately it was an own-goal that saw us draw."
