Former Hammers Sofiane Feghouli and Manual Da Costa have been involved in a major bust-up in the Turkish Super League which resulted in Feghouli for kicking Da Costa in the chest after he had been fouled.
Feghouli moved to Turkey to complete a £4m move to Turkish club Galatasaray in 2017. The Algerian joined the Hammers on a free transfer after leaving Valencia. His deal included signing on fee worth £3.1m paid over three years worth just over £20,000 per week on top of his £55,000 per week basic wage.
Da Costa signed a three-year contract with West Ham in 2009, for an undisclosed fee, as part of a deal that took Savio Nsereko to Fiorentina. Da Costa left West Ham in June 2011. He had played 35 games in all competitions scoring four goals including two against Stoke City and one against Everton.
Although they were never at West Ham at the same time they appear not to be best of friends.

“Galatasaray have pushed the self destruct button.”
We haven’t seen a red card like this for a while! 😳
