West Ham Sack Recruitment Chief Tony Henry Over African Player Comments

West Ham have sacked director of player recruitment Tony Henry over claims he said the club would not sign any more African players. The decision follows a report by the Daily Mail which carried quotes from Henry stating African players “cause mayhem” when they are not in the team. The club said his comments were “unacceptable”, adding they conducted a “full and thorough investigation”. It added: “West Ham United will not tolerate any type of discrimination.” On Friday, Hammers manager David Moyes said the mood of the squad had not been affected by the controversy. “I’ve spoken to one or two of the African players and they seem fine and they’ve trained well. Morale is good. We’re on the back of a pretty good run and we want to keep it going,” said the Scot. “I’ve never, e...

Jones Showers Praise On Ayew After ‘Incredible’ Form

Former West Ham United striker Steve Jones has revealed that he is satisfied with the performance of Andre Ayew in recent games. The 27-year-old joined the Hammers in a record £20 million deal from Swansea City last season but had a poor start after picking up an injury on his debut against Chelsea, spending almost two months on the sidelines. Although, he later recovered and featured 25 times as well as scoring nine goals, he was criticised for ‘lack of commitment’. He subsequently lost his starting place in Slaven Bilic's squad but has been in top form of late, netting three times in his last two games. “It is good to see Andre Ayew finding form in front of goal,” Jones told Echo. “I have questioned his £20 million price tag – which was the fee he joined West Ham United for from Swa...

West Ham United’s Andre Ayew Delighted With Goalscoring Form

Andre Ayew is delighted with his fine goalscoring form after scoring a goal in West Ham United’s 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace in Saturday's Premier League game. The Ghana international continued a truly amazing run with a goal at the Selhurst Park to give Slaven Bilic’s men a two-goal lead in the first half after Javier Hernández had opened scoring for the visitors. Having bagged a brace against Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday, Ayew is thrilled with his third strike this week but expressed his disappointment after Luka Milivojevic and Wilfried Zaha’s goals ensured both sides had to settle for a share of the spoils. “Gutted not to get the 3 points. Happy to get my 3rd goal in the week. Lets prepare for next weekend. Thanks to our fans for their support,” Ayew wrote on Instagram. Ayew ...

Resurgent Ayew Out To Save West Ham And Bilic

West Ham United attacker Andre Ayew says the team are focused on turning around their fortunes as they hope to protect under-fire manager Slaven Bilic. Bilic’s future has been thrown in doubt following the Hammers’ disappointing form this season. Having won only two of nine Premier League games, West Ham currently sit two places above the demotion zone, and the situation gets worse upon realising that the side are tied on points with relegation-trapped Everton. “It’s not been easy, it’s been a tough time, but we have a lot of quality players and we need to stick together and keep fighting as a team and we’ll get out of this situation,” Ayew said, as reported by his club’s official website. “When you’re in a club like West Ham and the results are difficult, the manager is under ...

West Ham Stun Tottenham Hotspur To Reach League Cup Quarters

West Ham completed a stunning turnaround on Wednesday, roaring back from two goals down against Tottenham Hotspur to reach the League Cup quarter-finals while Chelsea saw off the challenge of Everton. Slaven Bilic’s much-changed side were trailing 2-0 at the break after an insipid first-half display but a brace from Andre Ayew and a third from Angelo Ogbonna shocked the Wembley crowd and completed an astonishing comeback for the Premier League strugglers. Spurs, who also made multiple changes, were quickly in control through an early goal from Moussa Sissoko, who strolled through the middle of the defence and stroked the ball past West Ham goalkeeper Adrian after a pass from Son Heung-Min. They doubled their lead with about eight minutes remaining in the first half when Dele Alli ...

Tottenham Win Gives West Ham ‘A Lot Of Confidence’, Says Slaven Bilic

Spurs looked set to pile more misery on Bilic when Dele Alli and Moussa Sissoko gave the home side a two-goal lead at Wembley. But West Ham came storming back in the second half as Andre Ayew scored twice and Angelo Ogbonna headed in for an unlikely 3-2 victory. After losing 3-0 at home to Brighton last Friday, Bilic admitted before the game this was another 'do-or-die' week for his side, who sit 16th in the Premier League table. They now face a crunch match away to fellow strugglers Crystal Palace this weekend and Bilic hopes this victory can spark a revival. 'It can give us a lot of confidence, but only to do the same in training, to do the same on Friday, on Saturday,' the Hammers boss said. 'We have to use this opportunity to work hard. We have two days before Palace, it's not ide...

Bilic: Frank de Boer’s Sacking Was On My Mind Before West Ham Win

Bilic had been under pressure following three defeats from West Ham's first three Premier League games of the season. Palace dismissed De Boer on Monday after they lost to Burnley on Sunday - their fourth successive loss. "Was De Boer's sacking on my mind? It was. I ain't going to lie," said Bilic. "But I'm 49, I've been in football since I was 18, so I know. "To be fair, I came into the zone where I didn't care about that - not in a negative way. I care about the team - but I saw them really focused. Huddersfield, who were promoted to the Premier League last season, arrived at London Stadium unbeaten and as the only top-flight side yet to concede a goal. However, they fell behind in the second half when Pedro Obiang's shot took a big deflection off defender Mathias Jorgensen to loop...
