Michail Antonio has admitted the constant media headlines around the club can be distracting to players.
Antonio told the Sun newspaper: “There’s always another story. If not the board, it is a player or the stadium. It’s very frustrating. We all want to turn up to work and not have the hassle of people asking what’s going on? It’s part of West Ham life now, you have just got to move with it.”
However, David Moyes told reporters post-match after the Brighton defeat that the latest racism row with Tony Henry was not affecting his players in his opinion. “No effect (on the players’ performance) what so ever, the club have done what they believe they have to do and moved on. We have to (draw a line under it) and move on completely from it”
