West Ham United fans are livid after talkSPORT presenter Jim White suggested Hammers supporters were angry the club paid £5m to sign Vladimir Coufal from Slavia Prague.
The Irons purchased Coufal last summer from the Czech outfit. With Europa League and Champions League experience to his name, there were few who could argue the price they paid for the 28-year-old was excessive. Reportedly, it was Tomas Soucek who recommended David Sullivan and co should move for the right-back as he had played with him at Slavia (Ceska Televize).
However, White has suggested the Hammers fans slammed the board for the transfer (talkSPORT via hammersnews). While Gold, Sullivan and Brady are far from popular amongst the club’s supporters (hammersunited.com), there is no indication this was the case, and the comments have angered the Irons faithful.
Were you angry with the signing of Coufal?
They were far from happy with this quotes, and they took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the comments from White below
“This is utter garbage by White. Pathetic.”
“When did any @WestHam fan question the signing and/or the price of Coufal ??????? I for one have heard no such thing. This is absolute nonsense from @JimWhite and he/or @talkSPORT should retract this statement.”
“That’s an absolute falsehood. I don’t remember any outcry at all, In fact most people were happy with Soucek’s recommendation as I recall. #GSBOUT”
“I dont remember their being an outcry for the signing of Coufal? Just another lie from Sullivan’s mouthpiece.”
“That is utter nonsense”
“Can we sue him for slander”
