Zarate claims Irons was a well paid mistake

zarateMAURO ZARATE has revealed that his move to West Ham was a well paid mistake.

Zarate split opinion in a big way among the fans but was wished all to sucess in the world by club offiials on Twitter when clinching his move to Fiorentina.

Now he has declared that life at Upton park was just a “well paid bit of fun” – not good!

He thoroughly enjoyed the reported £40,000-a-week he was picking up for being a fringe player but has said he only had eyes for Italy.

“West Ham was a mistake, I wanted Italy,” Zarate said

“I wanted to come back to Italy, it was definitely worth it and the club knows I turned down other offers.

“I decided to help a team that was challenging for important targets. West Ham was a mistake and I didn’t think it through.

“The Premier League is fun and obviously the wages are very different, so that swayed my decision at the time.”

  1. Zarate can’t seem to make his mind up. He thanks the club and fans and tells us how we are very special and told JSJ on twitter how we can qualify for champions league etc. But he also says he was played out of position and that his eyes were always set on Italy and that West Ham was a mistake. What is it with him?

  2. Why now players can’t just keep quite keep their dignity and leave fans with a nice taste on their lips beats me,
    I liked Zarate at times and he just makes me feel frustrated,if you had a son with his ability you could take him to great heights, but being naturally lazy is the only way I can say it or is it the short person napoleon syndrome where he thinks he is better than he is !
    Just go to Italy sleep your way through games and score the odd great goal retire with all your money and die a forgotten man unlike Tevez who we will talk about and the next group of fans for ever,

  3. On the contrary, I will fondly remember Mauro Zarate for a long time but that’s mainly because of his wife. I’ll miss her.
