Hammer finally comments on international future

West Ham defender Issa Diop has confirmed that he will play his senior international football with France.

Diop has a Moroccan mother and a Senegalese father, but was born in France. 

And he is set to represent the country of his birth at senior international level, having already played for Les Bleus at youth level.

“I have always said that I will only play for France and no one else,” Diop said.

“Whether I am selected or even if I am never selected with the A’s, I will not play for another team.

“I was born in France. It’s in France that I have everything. So I do not see why I would play for another nation.”

Diop is West Ham’s record signing, joining the club for a £22 million fee from Toulouse in the summer.

  1. Thought Anderson was our most expensive player.

  2. Perhaps Issa Diop could be prevailed upon to teach Rice something about consistency and clarity of thought and how that works with loyalty. It might not be fashionable these days but maybe something along the lines of making decisions and commitments and then honouring them??

    • I am wondering if Rice is playing a game with his contract because he will probably be more valuable as an England International and waiting until he signs before he commits to Ireland as he should do ? Have no idea of course just speculating 🙂
