News Premier League West Ham

With West Ham United having an average Premier League finish and below par performances throughout most of the season, many players have come in for criticism, and none more so than the non-existent Alvaro Arbeloa. After having a touching send off last season at the Bernabeu, where the Spanish international won two Champions Leagues and one La Liga title after 133 appearances during a seven-year stint, many expected this Slaven Bilic summer signing to provide much-needed stability and ability to build on their impressive 9th place finish last season.

After arriving on a free from the Spanish giants, there was much hype around Alvaro Arbeloa however, the optimism failed to be fulfilled with the former World Cup and two-time Euro winner only mustering up 3 Premier League appearances against Southampton, Middlesborough and Arsenal which finished 0-3, 1-1 and 1-5 respectively and then in the 1-0 win against Accrington Stanley in the EFL cup. And in the past few days, perhaps the reason for his lack of appearances in matchday squads has been figured out. Some inside information has been leaked by a prominent West Ham figure on Twitter, (@ExWHUemployee), which has reported that Arbeloa kicked a youth player in training and then went on to mock Slaven Bilic and gloated over the fact that he had won Europe’s top prize saying, talk to me when you’ve won the Champions’ League” when Bilic tried to reprimand the Spaniards actions.

Although this is news which the club wouldn’t come out and confirm, @exWHUemployee is a reliable source for West Ham inside gossip, having worked at the club previously thus amalgamating links with those who still work there. If this is true, it doesn’t make much difference for West Ham as Sam Byram, Nordtveit and Michael Antonio filled in at right back for most of the season and with Pablo Zabaleta having signed a contract to join the club yesterday, Arbeloa’s departure and actions haven’t had major repercussions for the club.

However, it is this level of disrespect for the Serbian manager, who has lead the East London club to two mid-table finishes thus far in his tenure at the club which is shocking, and may signify why the Serbian manager has much to worry for, having reportedly lost the dressing room several times this season on other occasions.
