FORMER WEST HAM STRIKER TAKES DIG AT THE HAMMERS ON INSTAGRAM

Javier Hern√°ndez has taken a subtle swipe at the London club as a result of how his time at the Hammers ended before his departure.

The former Manchester United forward signed for West Ham United back in the summer transfer window of 2017, but he believes his time in East London could have ended on a better note than it did. After sealing the £16 million transfer, he played in 55 games for West Ham and scored 16 goals - a low output given his ability and goal-scoring record.
The Mexico international striker ended up handing a transfer request after growing displeased with life at the club and was sold to Spanish club Sevilla in 2019 afterward. The 32-year-old has now revealed in a recent post he made on social media insisting that the club failed to fulfill a couple of the promises they made to him when he was signing his contract.
Slaven Bilic, his manager at the club during his time there, was sacked just a few months after the striker left the club following a poor run of form that saw them languishing close to the bottom of the Premier League table. Although the Mexican superstar eventually ended up playing for David Moyes and Manuel Pellegrini, he said the situation was the same under the three bosses and they all failed to fulfill the promises of enough game time they promised they were going to give him prior to him signing the contract agreement.
The striker now plies his trade in the United States and currently plays for Major League Soccer side Los Angeles Galaxy. In his post on Instagram, he said he enjoyed his stay at West Ham a lot but was not happy due to the empty promises they made to him back then. He added that the club have a great fanbase and also commended their stadium, citing that it always provided a great atmosphere to play in.
