Coufal is in exalted Hammers company
West Ham‘s fury at the international break issues is more than understandable but they won’t be too unhappy that Vladimir Coufal has been sent home by the Czech Republic which according to one of the local papers out there was for allegedly drinking in the early of the morning after the game. If that indeed is the case then Coufal is in exalted Hammers company writes Hughie Southon.
Bobby Moore, Brian Dear and Jimmy Greaves failed to appear in the FA Cup match against Blackpool over 50 years ago in 1971. Believing the next day’s game had been called off because of weather conditions, they went to boxer Brian London’s club the night before. Later the match was actually declared to be on but manager Ron Greenwood refused to use them and the team was beaten 4-0.
Now, a Czech local paper claims to have seen a video of Coufal and two team mates – also sent home for breaking team rules – showing them in a night club enjoying a few bevvies.
The Hammers, meanwhile will be privately happy that the right back will be available for the match at Burnley – David Moyes’ reaction however remains to be seen. However, Michail Antonio most certainly won’t be and we will need to wait until after a scan to see if Jarrod Bowen will make it.
