Players skip valentines day to watch Drake



West Ham players were at the O2 arena tonight in a private box to watch rapper Drake. They were VIP guests of Mark Pryke, the owner of S14 VIP limited who supplies cars to stars including many of the West Ham first team.

Mark Noble, Michail Antonio, Ashley Fletcher, Darren Randolph, Aaron Cresswell and Angelo Ogbonna were all pictured with Mark on Valentine’s evening. Whether they had ditched their wives and girlfriends to watch the rapper instead is unknown.

Earlier today we revealed 18% of Hammers questioned in a poll would rather watch their club play football than spend St Valentine’s Day with their partner. Maybe that is true for West Ham players and a Drake concert too.

Hope they didn’t tell their WAGS they were training late. Tomorrow the lads fly off to Dubai after the family fun day.
