West Ham United forward Michail Antonio has cast doubt on his future at the club, admitting he hasn’t met his own expectations this season.

In a recent interview with BBC’s The Players Channel, the 34-year-old Jamaican international acknowledged his lack of goals and assists this season, falling short of his self-imposed “minimum” of 10 goals. While the presenters acknowledged Antonio’s injury struggles, he downplayed their impact, emphasising his own accountability.

Despite his recent struggles, Antonio remains a legend at West Ham. He boasts an impressive record of 82 goals and over 300 appearances in nine years with the club. The roaring applause he received when substituted against Luton Town underscored his standing with the West Ham faithful.

Antonio’s previous desire to retire at West Ham seems to be wavering. His underwhelming season and the upcoming managerial change under Julen Lopetegui might prompt him to seek opportunities elsewhere in order to extend his playing career.

Antonio’s journey at West Ham is a remarkable one. He transitioned from a full-back in his early career to becoming a winger and finally settling into his current role as a prolific striker.

Antonio has also carved out a space for himself on the international stage with Jamaica, scoring three goals in 14 appearances. His final season at West Ham might be upon him, with the upcoming trip to Manchester City a potential farewell performance.

While Antonio’s future with West Ham remains unclear, his status at the club is undeniable. The upcoming season under a new manager and his own performance this season will likely determine whether he stays or seeks a new challenge

    Great servant to the club and you cannot fault him for effort but you lost me at “prolific”..

      Mikey will always be a legend. I hope that he deals with his mental health issues and finds happiness. I think that he was originally a winger but Slaven tried to convert him into an ultra attacking full back after being impressed by Clyne at the Euros – a move that didn’t really work
