Zarate faces internal Irons hearing


West Ham’s Mauro Zarate will face an internal disciplinary hearing following his comments about manager Sam Allardyce.

The player is on his way to Queens Park Rangers on loan after blasting the 60 year old boss in a public interview.

However, reports this morning that he WILL be fined by the club are incorrect as he will first face an internal inquiry.

A Hammers source told ClaretandHugh: “That’s the way things work – you can’t punish a person unless or until they have had a hearing.

“There will be a hearing re professional misconduct, it would be wrong to judge the result in advance.”

    When’s BS hearing for his comments today, fairs fair, if the matter is in hand then why did Sam have to make a comment he should be bigger than that,his comments just make our directors look silly as because everyone involved has made it clear they signed this player,why hold a hearing if he is not good enough sell him don’t loan him,it takes a big man to make those decision ( remember when Cloughie bought A centre forward and watched him train once,he sold him within a month ) this club does not need this carnival now when we need to get back on track and win some points.

    Bubs Zarate started all this with his agents quote, which we now know was true, about 3 months ago. Like or loathe Sam, there was only going to be one winner. But I do agree with you, we don’t need this now which is why Zarate needs to go sooner rather than later.

    If his imminent loan to qpr is true it makes Al the he said she said rather irrelevant. However, one thing that Mr zarate maybe should have considered is by saying what he has reportly have said about BS then he has most certainly burnt his bridges on a possible return if it all goes wrong with Harry Redknapp.

  • markro says:

    Allardyce has reacted inappropriately. All he needed to say was that, at the present time, he could not see how Zarate could break into the team, and that a loan was the best way to give him first team football and keep him fit.

    On a related tack – with Sakho off to AFCON, if Valencia gets an injury, that leaves Carroll and Cole as the only two strikers left. They will not start together. Perhaps removing Zarate from the mix during AFCON is therefore professionally questionable.
