Fans of West Ham United have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed a report regarding the Hammers’ interest in a January move for Diego Costa.
According to a recent report by The Athletic, David Moyes stopped West Ham from making a move for the former Atletico Madrid centre-forward in the winter transfer window, as the 57-year-old felt that the Spain international would not have fit into the feeling of togetherness that is evident within his team.
Indeed, despite the fact that Moyes currently only has one out and out centre-forward in his first-team squad, the Hammers have been in remarkable form this season, with the east London side sitting in fourth place in the Premier League standings with just seven games left to play.
And, after West Ham Central relayed the report regarding Diego Costa on Twitter, fans of the Irons flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing to blame the club’s owners for the interest in the 32-year-old, stating their belief that David Gold and David Sullivan have no idea what they are doing in the transfer market.
Was Moyes right to not sign Costa in January?
So, what exactly did these West Ham United fans have to say in reaction to the report regarding Diego Costa?
“It shows GSB have no plan in place and that this season is all down to Moyes. It’s worrying how clueless they are.”
“This would have been a dreadful decision to sign him…”
“Thank Moyes for that!”
“Well done Dave. Another over the hill striker – who’d have ever have guessed? Maybe Jack suggested this one?”
“No. We have a squad playing for each other. Costa would make it all about him. We have to stop buying journeymen on massive wages.”
