Obiang future in doubt


obiang14Injured Pedro Obiang watched his former club Sampdoria play at the Ferraris stadium yesterday before explaining he’s one day want to play in in the county again.

He told“I had a slight injury, I’ll be out for three or four months, but this allowed me to come support the team.

“In England I’m comfortable, at the beginning it was hard but slowly I found space, I was playing more but unfortunately, in football, this can happen: after a short stop I’ll come back next season”

He was asked about his future and said “It’s very likely I’ll return to Italy, but I don’t know when I would return here (Sampdoria) above all else, but you never know.

I would certainly like to return, everyone wants to but there are many teams, we’ll have to wait a bit. Fiorentina? There were some simple discussions, but West Ham didn’t want to sell me and I wanted to stay there”

    Good effort a making a story from nothing. `West Ham didn’t want to sell me and I wanted to stay there”. A lot of players say they want to go back to their first club, very few do it and usually in the final years of their career.

    Totally agree Russ. Thought Sean was better than adding 2 + 2 and equalling 5. Trying to make a story out of nothing. Shame really.

    Er I think Mr Payet has started a trend here with his “I want to leave and this is the club I wish to join”

    Personally I think he is a loyal lad but if we were to sell him we would make decent money and he’s not irreplaceable I’m my view.
