Southampton is set to ban any supporter found to have made indecent gestures in reference to the death of Emiliano Sala.
Southampton have confirmed two fans were detained by police after making “indecent gestures” during the Premier League game against Cardiff City, where respects were paid to the late Emiliano Sala.
Video footage shared on social media revealed men mimicking planes at St Mary’s and the Saints confirmed authorities had taken the details of two individuals.
A statement from the club read: “Southampton Football Club can confirm that two fans were detained and had their details taken by police during our match against Cardiff City on Saturday.
“The club will continue to work with Hampshire Police to identify any individuals deemed to have made indecent gestures towards Cardiff supporters.
“Such behaviour has no place in our game and will not be tolerated at St Mary’s. The club will be taking an extremely firm stance against anyone involved and intends to ban those supporters identified.”
This is very bad and should not be overlooked by the club.
