West Ham chairman David Sullivan has claimed there could be riots if Tottenham Hotspur relocate to the Olympic Stadium.
The stadium is located within the West Ham heartland and they are also keen on moving to the venue after the Olympic games take place in 2012.
He said: ‘It would be such a slap in the face to east London. If it happens, there will be real problems that could easily lead to civil unrest.
‘I think there could be riots, such is the ill feeling between West Ham and Spurs and I know the police feel the same.’
Sullivan said: ‘I feel very let down by Tottenham. The way they do business is not right. They pinched Eidur Gudjohnsen off us after we brought him from Barcelona for talks. He just disappeared from the hotel. And the way they unsettled Scott Parker was appalling.
‘Now they want to move into our borough of Newham. How would they like it if we suddenly set up a new home in Haringey. I’m flabbergasted by the cheek of it.’
