Writing on Twitter, club insider and reliable source ExWHUemployee dropped a fitness update surrounding exciting young forward Mipo Odubeko – going on to claim he is unlikely to feature against Doncaster Rovers in the FA Cup.
Odubeko was thought to have tested positive for COVID-19, but ExWHUemployee has now revealed that the results were incorrect and he has been falsely isolating – with manager David Moyes saying in his press conference yesterday that they were waiting on the doctor to see which test is ‘correct’ (football.london).
Dropping his update on the situation, ExWHUemployee states the test was in fact negative and the youngster has been isolating under false information – with the 18-year-old now unlikely to play today due to lack of match fitness.
Flocking to this news, many Irons had plenty to say – find all of their verdicts from social media down below.
West Ham fans flock to ExWHUemployee update
“That’s so West Ham”
“I refuse to believe a week off training enables them to not be match for. Is he hold up in a Flat with no garden? Tennis players are in two weeks isolation in hotels rooms and with a week to prepare for tournament after.”
“This club never fails to do a West Ham, even when we’re high flying.”
“West Ham being West Ham”
“He is 18, surely he is fit enough to play some part!!!”
“Surely he wouldn’t get that unfit in less than 2 weeks !?!”
“18 year old professional footballer can’t play because he had 5 days off. Wow!”
“I’m sure hes been exercising at home. Perfect opportunity to see what his like!”
