Antonio forced to clarify Rice good luck message

Michail Antonio was forced to clarify a Good Luck message he sent to West Ham captain Declan Rice on Instagram this evening.

Michail posted ‘Good Luck Brother’ which caused a mini-meltdown on social media as supporters read that to mean the 21-year-old defensive midfielder was off.

Speculation has surrounded the Hammer for months with media reports and rumours that Frank Lampard and Chelsea will come for him.

West Ham and David Moyes have made it clear that their star player is not for sale and no bids or enquires have been received.

Michail was forced to quickly clarify his post by posting a new one to make it clear he was wishing his West Ham team-mate good luck with his England duties re-posting his message to say ‘Good Luck with England Brother’

Rice has been selected for the England squad again with fixtures against Wales, Belgium and Denmark in the International break.

  1. It’s a rarity that I’d criticise one of our players for something that doesn’t involve their performance on the pitch, but in this case an exception has to be made…


  2. It must be pretty tempting to wind up the media and make them look like muppets. That isn’t hard to do as the number of articles and online content in general (MSN being prime axample) are written with no fact checks and reflects lazy journalism on the while. Not talking about you guys here by the way! I’m referring to journo’s in general – too many double standards, too much hypocrisy and lashings of BS to generate misleading and quite often stories that are completely incorrect – even go as far to say fabricated. Anyway, I’ve ratted on and gone off piste – maybe I should go work for the Sun or Guardian with my rambling – not sure which one is the worse thiugh…
