Sakho must lump it or like it

Diafra-Sakho-315346Diafra Sakho is going absolutely nowhere until the club have replaced him with that elusive striker.

David Sullivan has often declared no one will go until they are replaced and has done so again via the media this morning.

Despite interest from West Brom, Hamburg and Spanish side Sevilla the co chairman has made his position crystal clear: Sakho stays until the new front man is in the bag.

He said: ” “He is not for sale until we get players in. Until we bring strikers in, we simply cannot let strikers go.

“James Tomkins was different because we had a surplus in the centre-half department. But until we get at least a couple of strikers we can’t let any forward go.”

West Ham are continuing to wait on a decision from AC Milan striker Carlos Bacca after agreeing a £26m fee with the Italian club.

Discussing his so far fruitless hunt for a striker Sullivan added: ““The problem is every striker you go for, there are 10 others clubs interested in him. So the player is just hanging about looking to get the best deal. I can’t say I blame him.”

Just ike Robbie Savage before him – when the Davids were in charge of Birmingham City  – Sakho will be told lump it or like it although it remains difficult to see how we will get our best from a guy in his present mood.

  1. Send me a free return-airfare to London, and I’ll sort him out, no worries.
    The doctor has spoken!

  2. Let West Ham be the club that makes a stand against ‘player power’ stick him in with the kids & let him sulk. He will soon be forgotten by other clubs & there will be no offers for him. I take it the club can fine him 2 weeks wages for refusing to go to Austria.. the days of a small squad with about 16 players & the same starting 11 each week are long gone, a PL squad should be able to field 2 really good sides. Any player who doesn’t like being part of a big squad will find themselves up a certain creak.
    if he does leave it will be to a smaller club so looks a great career move for him.

  3. We still need a CF for the season,
    We have made him feel great about himself chasing every forward in the world but not making him feel welcome,
    I for one was looking forward to winning a few games in Europe this year,just hope Fletcher and Martinez are up to the job,
    Just bring Bony in on a 1 year loan now

  4. Bony, a proven Premiership player would be nice… We don’t know what’s gone on behind closed doors re Sakho and the club, but I do remember last season Sakho not being picked for a game then being suddenly ‘injured’ after.. Tut tut.. I think it’s sad because I believe he could’ve been our 20 goal a season player but sad to say those seeds were fouled last season…

  5. Even worse they are still going after bacca ? Sakho doesn’t want to stay and bacca doesn’t want to come . ?
    Sully you have lost the fu££ing plot mate ???
    Max , its sully that needs a doctor ! Bring the white coat with you ?
