Watch out Maiga’s about!

maigaModibo Maiga looks set for an Upton Park return next season unless the club can work a sizeable miracle by finding him a loan or permanent club.

Should that prove impossible the super flop striker will pick up around nearly £2 million for his last season as a Hammer unless he decides to take a pay-off from the club.

Maiga – currently on £40k a week – has been as ineffective at Metz on loan as he was with Queens Park Rangers and it’s highly unlikely the French outfit will want to keep him on the books.

He has managed four goals in ten appearances and was disciplined after going AWOL ahead of a match earlier in the season.

Maiga refused all pay-offs offered by the Irons board ahead of the move to France where Metz picked up a small percentage of his wages.

And a Hammers source told ClaretandHugh exclusively today: “It’s likely he will be offered some sort of pay-off but on the strength of what we saw last summer it may be difficult to get him off the wage bill.”

  1. I give him all my money, but please I don’t want see him anymore.

  2. Pay him but keep him away from football let him clean the youngsters boots carry the phisio,s bag when he comes on to treat he injured,
    Mow BFS,S LAWN.
    If he will not take a payoff,let him watch every game but no training no joining the other players,he will take the payoff or his carrer will be over.

  3. My mate lives in france & said he had done ok in the games he saw him in.Im mean for him 4 goals in 10 matches is a major hot streak 🙂

  4. The way we play now would probably suit him better. It was hard for anyone to look good last season tbh.

  5. Very true JimmyM!!! I still remember his goal against the spuds!!!!
