Former Hammer explains he left West Ham to win titles

Former Hammer Sofiane Feghouli says money is not important to him and he left West Ham to compete to win things like league titles. He took a pay cut to move to Turkey.

Feghouli joined Galatasaray for a reported €5.5m deal after just one season with West Ham.

The Algerian told the French media “First of all it’s not about money. I had already been making good money in England. They had been paying me well, but I realised I needed to compete for titles, I just decided it’s time to leave. So it’s not about money, it’s for the titles.”

Adding “At West Ham, I realised I wasn’t happy for a while. I needed to find a project like Valencia to compete for trophies, and I think I found it.”

  1. He’s got a high esteem of his self.You going is no loss to us.

  2. I thought we sold him cos he didn’t suit the squad! I didn’t mind him, thought he put a good shift in but when they start bagging the Hammers… Jog on muppet.

    • He is saying that now but he was sold basically bc high wages made £45k & £65k w bonus which we still paid to even books & get in another player Car which didn’t happen.
      But I like Feghouli had a good attitude & some pace could create & score RW RM or #10.
      We sold for too cheap too only £3.9m peanuts look at is record worth Much more than that.
      But is gone has scored some screamers for Galatasary but wish him the best.
      He said before he wanted to stay & was basically pushed out
