Following West Ham United’s 0-0 draw with Southampton on Tuesday, many Irons fans tore into the ‘woeful’ display of winger Andriy Yarmolenko after manager David Moyes gave him the nod to start ahead of Said Benrahma – with the Ukrainian being hauled off midway through the second half.
Yarmolenko, who has been easing his way back into the first team, was handed another opportunity to prove his worth against the Saints during West Ham’s goalless stalemate, but he debatably failed to grasp it.
Indeed, the 6 ft 3 star proved ineffective out wide, with Moyes bringing him off in the 72nd minute to be replaced by Jarrod Bowen.
In reaction to his ‘woeful’ showing, many Irons didn’t hold their opinions back – blasting the ‘waste of space’ who is currently the club’s highest earner on around £115,000-per-week.
Find all of their verdicts down below.
West Ham fans blast Yarmolenko
“Yarmalenko is worse than haller”
“Can we sell off Yarmolenko just ship him off, I’d sell him for a flat Lucozade”
“Not a bad half, Yarmolenko waste of space and need a bit of creativity. Hopefully, we can make a few subs and nick a goal”
“Yarmolenko and Haller have been woeful tonight”
“Yarmolenko seems to want to play at half pace. Plus everything has to be showy with him – no way will he cross the ball until he’s done a stepover or two first. An option for late sub but shouldn’t be starting now.”
“Let’s be honest.. Yarmolenko was dreadful today. He’s incredibly slow and really lazy”
