DG’s wicked stab at Diame


mohamed-diame-west-ham-united_3010044David Gold has barely hid his contempt for Mohamed Diame’s latest outburst against West Ham whilst talking up his personal ambitions.

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

    Much as we might not like the criticism Diame has a point. Clearly a better midfield option than Nolan and with run of games and some confidence shown from the manager, the type of match winning performance seen against CFC might have been seen more often?

    • Michael Miller says:

      Yes, I remember him coming on at half-time against Chelsea and having a blinder, but BFS persisted in playing him out of position. How Nolan could get in the team above Diame will forever be a mystery.

      Diame may have been a little ill-advised in his comments but he does have a point!

  • pabloonechop says:

    So if was played in position against other ‘top’ sides out results may have been better, certainly not any worse?
    Whose his agent – presumably not mark Curtis.?……
