Diame today made it clear in the national press that he believes his chances of a big move were scuppered by being played out of position at Upton Park.
He had said: “At West Ham I was shunted around all the different positions. I remember one time I had to play as a striker.”
“That was not good for my career. I wanted to play for a club that is high in the Premier League table.”
“At least with Hull I will be certain of playing in my favoured role. I should have left West Ham a long time ago, as with them I wasn’t permitted to play in central midfield.”
The comments appear to have annoyed Gold, who took to Twitter to wish Diame good luck at Hull.
Gold appears to be taking a dig at Hull’s expected struggle in the Premier League this season, as they are tipped as one of the favourites for relegation.
He tweeted wickedly: “Daily Star – Mohamed Diame said it was always his aim to play for a team higher up the league table. Good luck at Hull Mohamed. dg
