Sullivan wishes Maiga well


MaigaWest Ham co owner David Sullivan has wished Modibo Maiga well as he leaves the club for a season-long spell at Metz.

The striker – as ┬árevealed by ClaretandHugh ┬áseveral days ago – has finally made his move across the channel.

And co-chairman Sullivan – speaking to us exclusively today said: “We wish him well, it is just a loan and we are paying the bulk of his wages.

“But it is a chance for the player to put himself in the shop window – we wish him well.”

Metz announced this morning on their website that the player was joining them.

 Maiga has scored 6 goals for the Hammers from 37 appearances and has just under two years remaining on his contract.

    He had a chance at QPR on loan to show what he could do – did well didn’t he scored on his debut then zilch. If we are paying the majority of his wages should have left him in the Development Squad and perhaps he might have tried harder or at least get his agent to do some work for the money we pay him (really think that the players should pay their agent’s wages not the clubs). There again we shouldn’t be putting these foreign players on such high wages not until they have proved themselves.
