With the international break upon us, many clubs decide to show photographs and videos of the players who represent them enjoying training with their countrymen.
After being included in the Scotland squad, Robert Snodgrass is one of the West Ham United players who are currently on national team duty.
The Hammers’ Twitter account decided to go with this effort for the caption of a photo showing him enjoying a session:

It turns out there are many people who don’t think this was a very good effort, with supporters of West Ham, Barcelona and various other clubs sharing their discontent.
Snodgrass has started one Premier League game, coming on as a substitute twice, as per WhoScored, averaging 0.7 key passes, 1.3 dribbles and 1 cross per game.
This isn’t a bad creative return considering he has been used as more of a substitute, though this certainly isn’t on Messi’s level, which is pretty obvious.
It seems as though some may have taken this a little bit too seriously, while one or two have turned to sarcasm.
A selection of Twitter reaction to the caption, including posts from unimpressed West Ham fans, can be seen below:
There’s still time to delete this

I thought the kids were back at school yet we’ve clearly let one loose on our Twitter account.
