Antonio nearly joined West Brom

Michail-AntMichail Antonio has revealed he thought he was about to join West Bromwich Albion before he was told West Ham had put a bid out of the blue for him.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5Live Antonio said ‘I thought I might be signing for West Brom, there was loads of links, but nothing with West Ham.”

‘I didn’t really hear anything until I basically signed the contract, it came out of the blue.”

‘They (West Brom) put a bid in and I thought I would end up in Birmingham, but now I’m in London, back home.’

  1. Thank goodness we got him,he has been a breath of fresh air,like Ginge he plays with his heart and has also got a bit of talent,he could be as important as T,Sinclair was when Di Canio was given freedom to destroy the other side,he has now got a bond with Kouyate on the right and they bounce off each other,early on we only had the left hand side producing the crosses for the forwards,
    Fast becoming a fans favourite

  2. One of the best attitudes I’ve seen from a footballer.
    Didn’t whine or sulk when not picked, only ever praised his teammates and manager, and was very respectful of the decisions slav made. Kept reiterating that he was happy to wait for his chance, and boy has he took it.
    Great energy levels and doing whats needed for the team when filling in at RB. The definition of a PROFESSIONAL footballer. Well pleased for the fella. 7m looks a steal now don’t it !!
