Flocking to Twitter, many West Ham United fans have slammed the performance of winger Andriy Yarmolenko despite their team cruising to a comfortable 2-0 win at home to Rapid Vienna last night.
David Moyes’ men maintained their 100% start to the Europa League season with a routine victory at the London Stadium and remain top of Group H as a result.
West Ham immediately took control of the contest and it took just under half an hour for them to open the scoring, with Declan Rice tucking away a close-range opportunity for 1-0.
The Irons had more chances to finish off Rapid Vienna, most notably Jarrod Bowen’s squandered opportunity, but it was Said Benrahma who eventually capped off a memorable night with his neat little finish in added time.
However, despite the fantastic result and performance overall, many fans couldn’t help but notice another off-day for Yarmolenko regardless of his involvement in the build-up to Rice’s goal.
Indeed, barring the sumptuous pass to Michail Antonio in that passage of play, it appears that the Ukraine international didn’t impress. Hauled off after 76 minutes, he completed zero successful crosses, had no shots on goal and touched the ball just 33 times according to SofaScore.
Here’s how some West Ham fans reacted to his “pathetic” display, and it’s safe to say many aren’t impressed, with one even describing him as “useless”.
West Ham fans slam Yarmolenko…
“Defence was solid. I’m actually a fan of Vlasic, I do think he needs to do more to really prove himself but I think he looks promising. Yarmolenko should be a customer service rep, not a footballer for West Ham United”
“I was stunned by how bad Yarmolenko was. We played with 10 men while he was on the pitch. And I felt very sorry for Ben Johnson. He had little protection from Yarmo the whole game. In fact I don’t want to see him play for our club again.”
“Yarmolenko wouldn’t get into my Sunday league team”
“I try and try and try to support Yarmolenko, but he is kinda useless.”
“Yarmolenko is actually so bad”
“Pathetic display from Yarmolenko yet again”
“Yarmolenko absolutely nicking a living”
“I really hope we can find a buyer for Yarmolenko in January. He’s just not good value for money”
