Bolaise sticks two fingers up at Hammers fans


Annoying Crystal Palace winger Yannick Bolasie has put the boot into Hammers fans revealing he thrived on the abuse he received on Saturday afternoon.

Following a clash with Hammers left-back Pablo Armero, Bolasie went down holding his head before referee Martin Atkinson finally stopped play following some West Ham hesitancy.

Unsurprisingly his every touch was met with boos from the home faithful after that but Bolasie said it didn’t affect him.

He said: “I got elbowed – I’m not sure if he meant it – but it wasn’t going to put me off my game. I cheer on the boos, I like it so I just keep smiling.

“I thought we played really well, we dealt with their second balls and kept picking up. We counter-attacked them, which seemed to work in the end.”
