Hammer moves to help as PFA hold out in talks

Pablo Fornals has made a donation to the hospital in his hometown of Castellon de la Plana to aid their current fight to save lives

While talks are ongoing between the Premier League and the Professional Footballers’ Association over wage deferrals to help those within clubs, a number of players have already stepped up to help where they can in their communities.

Fornals has demonstrated his generosity in a practical way to ensure that he does whatever he can to save lives.
It’s a great gesture from a guy who has been progressing well during a tricky part the season and is clearly really conscious of his ability to help wherever he feels it necessary

Fornals has remained in LondonĀ  but moved to help his hometown hospital after they provided care to his grandfather, who passed away last year.

As a club, West Ham have been continuing their community efforts. Captain Mark Noble wrote to a number of supporters and Newham residents and will also donate the fees for his Evening Standard column to a local foodbank, while club doctors have been working to support the NHS.

Meanwhile talks continue between the Premier League and PFA to convince the union boss Gordon Taylor to do what most of us believe to be the right thing and agree to a players pay cut continue from yesterday without a conclusion.

Talylor has been resisting an early move but the pressure is coming on in a big way and can only be exacerbated by gestures such as the Hammers midfielder’s move to help his local hospital.
