West Ham: Fans react as Adrian discusses his departure from the club

Former West Ham United goalkeeper Adrian has revealed that he made a “drastic decision” when he opted to leave the club at the end of last season.

The Spanish shot-stopper had been with the Hammers since 2013 and, during his time wit the club, he managed to rack up 150 appearances between the sticks in all competitions, keeping 43 clean sheets (Transfermarkt).

However, in the 2018/19 campaign, he fell behind Lukasz Fabianski in the pecking order at London Stadium following the Polish international’s arrival from Swansea City. Indeed, Adrian didn’t play a single minute of Premier League football last season and was limited to just three FA Cup and two League Cup appearances (Transfermarkt).

Despite the lack of game time, there was still a three-year deal on the table for the 33-year-old in the summer. However, he chose to reject that offer as he claims he didn’t feel valued by the club.

Speaking in an interview with the BBC, Adrian said: “I’d made a drastic decision not to stay any longer at West Ham, despite having a three-year contract offer on the table. I hadn’t played a single game all season in the Premier League. I didn’t feel valued economically either, to be honest. It was tough for me.”

He ended up joining Liverpool on a free transfer and he has managed to play plenty of games under Jurgen Klopp. An injury to Alisson meant that he was called upon earlier in the season and so far this term he has made 15 appearances, 10 of which have been in the Premier League (Transfermarkt).

Many West Ham fans have been reacting to what Adrian had to say about his departure from the club and it seems that many don’t blame him at all for leaving and feel he made the correct decision. Here is what some had to say on Twitter…
