Luis Boa Morte reveals West Ham move was not of his ‘own free will’

Luis Boa Morte reveals West Ham move was not of his ‘own free will’ - Latest News

Luis Boa Morte joined West Ham United in 2007 from Fulham, however, it appears he may not have joined The Hammers if he had his way.

In an interview back in his homeland of Portugal, the former forward revealed that the move was not of his ‘own free will’ and he had been ‘caught off guard’ with it all.

Speaking to Mais Futebol, he said: “I went to West Ham, which is a club with many supporters, but not by my own free will. I didn’t want to leave Fulham.


“A year ago, I could have gone to Newcastle and I did not want to force it out. Then the CEO of Fulham decided to sell me and both I and Chris Coleman (coach) were caught off guard. They accepted the West Ham proposal. As a captain I thought I deserved more consideration.”

Boa Morte made over 100 appearances for West Ham during his five-year stay at The Boleyn Ground, scoring just twice for the club before moving onto spells in Greece and South Africa.

The Verdict:

West Ham fans will have been disappointed with the revelation from Boa Morte, although they will not concern themselves too much with it.

The former Portugal international really struggled to make a real impact in east London and looked a real shadow of the attacker he was during his days at Craven Cottage with Fulham.

He looked really impressive for The Cottagers during his prime, which makes his time at The Hammers all the more disappointing.

West Ham fans – thoughts?
