Irons can’t sue Senegal over Sakho


sakho cross hammerWest Ham have”absolutely no chance” of getting a penny from the Senegal game’s ruling body following the injury to Diafra Sakho.

The Hammers goal machine was today ruled out for between four to six weeks as ClaretandHugh has exclusively revealed that the injury was caused by a Senegal physio,

We were told that he was being over-energetically treated by the physio and as a result he is now in real trouble with serious back problems.

One source told us that the player was all but paralysed during the treatment session and the Hammers are furious at the way he was mishandled.

He explained though that the Senegal ruling body is ‘potless’ and that we don’t have a chance of getting a single penny from the country.

He said: “There’s no point in suing . They haven’t got a bean. It would be a totally pointless exercise.

“Furious doesn’t begin to get close to the feelings of people here at the monet. It’s a disgrace – unbelievable.

“Now we have to worry about the African Nations cup but they will be accompanied by a member of our medical staff.”

    Only at West Ham – should not have allowed him to go in the first place. We always end up with injuries after International games

    Perhaps if the manager had holidayed in Senegal instead of beaching himself in Mauritius on company time with the majority of the squad left in the UK(before yet another defeat) he might have been able to keep an eye on his prized asset.but what can you expect from a genius on £3m a year who enjoys taking the mickey?

    Holiday in Senagal? That well known package holiday destination. FFS I’ve become addicted to replying to your comments but then I do like easy targets.

    Why the hell do you have a problem with Sam taking a holiday during the international break? I bet most the players and staff fitted in a 7 day break during the 2 weeks without a game. Teddy was in Dubia you know, shock horror!

    When you are feeding you gob during Christmas and the New Year Sam and the players will be training and fitting in 4 matches in 12 days, perhaps they could’ve taken a week off then like the rest of the country? I’m sure Thomas Cook do great deals for 25 players to Senagal over Christmas…

    I think he is Sams abandoned love child & this is the only way he can attack BFS,but at least he never mentioned Sullivan,Gold & Brady as being useless as well this time.Oh & ofc there was the real bonus of Curtis not being mentioned,that is a real novelty in his comments.Miserable git 🙂

    I think Rugbyirons is a parody account. Parody of an idiot.

    I do secretly secretly enjoy his ramblings tho as it gives me something to mock. It staggers me that he really believes what he types!

  • I’m totally bored with it – this forum doesn’t exist to allow one person to bore the life out of everyone with a single subject. Prepare to see less of them if it continues

  • WhuG says:

    Yeah off with his head!

    Ladbrokes are offering 100-1 against Rugbyirons being able to post something positive about our club to save his head!
