West Ham fan Knollsy was given some love today following his actions of fighting off AZ Alkmaar fans who attempted to intimidate the West Ham squad’s families on Thursday.
A video went viral of Knollsy on the night of the Hammers’ victory over the Dutch side in their Europa Conference League semi-final in midweek as he was filmed fighting off a huge group of Alkmaar fans who seemed intent on getting into the West Ham section of the stadium.
