West Ham Striker Enner Valencia has been forced to set the record straight to defend himself. Yesterday, a number of tabloids and websites reported the story that Valencia would welcome transfer bids.
“I have heard of the [interest from] Chelsea and other teams, but we are going to wait. You have to see what happens. If it is for my good and that of West Ham, then it is welcome.We are going to see what happens after the Copa America – a competition in which I think we are going to do good things.” Claimed a facebook which purported to be setup by the striker.
This afternoon Enner called the facebook quotes fake, taking to social media to defend himself he said:
“Once again I only have one Facebook account and I don’t used much” posted with a picture of his real facebook page.
“I really enjoyed my 1st season with West Ham and I am already looking forward to next season” He added.
His interpreter & P.A, Martin Tanco said “Some fake Enner Valencia profiles on the web, causing trouble! Enner is not responsible at all” “Valencia has only one FB account, the real one is this one: the rest are fake!” added Tanco on his twitter account.
Just over a week ago another tabloid suggested Enner Valencia was open to leaving the Hammers this summer if another club came in for him. The paper reported translated quotes from a Spanish interview which were found to be taken out of context.
